To prepare crisps, shaved Asiago can be put on a lightly greased baking sheet, placed in a 350-degree oven till cheese melts and is lightly browned; remove, let cool, save for garnish.

Place spring greens which have been tossed with your favorite vinaigrette in a bowl and lay the roasted asparagus across the top, garnish with the shaved Serrano ham and the Asiago cheese crisps.
