Trim the ends of the asparagus. Using a peeler, press firmly and peel the asparagus from just below the tip all the way down the stalk. Repeat until the entire stalk is shaved. Snap off the asparagus tip. Repeat for the remaining asparagus.
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add the asparagus shavings and tips and cook just two minutes so that the asparagus is cooked through but not soft. Remove the asparagus and submerge into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
Zest the lemon and put the zest in a small jar with a lid or in a small bowl. Juice the lemon and add to the zest.
Add the oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper to the lemon juice and zest. If in a jar, put the lid on and shake to combine. If in a bowl, whisk to combine.
Place one cup of your lettuce of choice into separate small bowls. Top each pile of lettuce with 1/4 of the asparagus. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.
I love using arugula with this salad but any lettuce you prefer would work great!
