Wild Asparagus Salad

Ingredients for Wild Asparagus Salad 
1 bunch asparagus
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
Spring salad mix for four people.  Frise is particularly appropriate with asparagus because it’s light green color contrasts nicely with the darker green asparagus and the slightly bitter flavor contrasts with the milder and sweeter asparagus, but any tender greens will  work.
2 tablespoons vinaigrette
A few  thin slices of parmesan cheese.

Cut the asparagus into 1 inch pieces.
Mince the garlic.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the garlic.  Cook until the garlic begins to turn brown and add the asparagus, except for the tops.  Saute quickly for two or three minutes, add the tops and cook another minute then remove and cool to room temperature.
Dress the salad with the vinaigrette and serve on four plates.  Add the asparagus to each salad plate and garnish with thin strips of parmesan cheese and fresh pepper.
