Asparagus, one of my favorite spring veggies, is the starring attraction in yet another gorgeous video recipe from Tiger in a Jar.

As they say on their website:

The process of creating a meal is one of the most beautiful and rewarding things we can do everyday. The slow, methodic combination of ingredients and the handling of their unique textures can be a theraputic release. We like to capture all the beauty and emotion that cooking can bring.

Well, they've certainly captured that magic yet again.

Thin ribbons of asparagus (carefully prepared with a vegetable peeler) are paired with rich toasted pine nuts, freshly squeezed lemon juice and hefty curls of parmesan cheese.

Simple, but sophisticated, this salad is going into my dinner party rotation immediately.

Enjoy the video, enjoy the salad, enjoy the natural pleasures of the season.
