Shave asparagus: Chop off the tough ends from asparagus stalks. If you want, also cut the tips off and set them aside to use as garnish. Using a vegetable peeler and starting at the end of the asparagus, peel asparagus from end to end into long ribbons. It helps if you hold the asparagus down on a cutting board to stabilize it.
Assemble Salad: Put asparagus ribbons in a large salad bowl. Also add arugula, sliced strawberries, cooked quinoa, and shaved parmesan (save a few slivers to garnish salad with). Drizzle dressing on and toss salad well.
Garnish salad with asparagus tips and parmesan slivers if desired.
Add all ingredients to a small jar, cover and shake well. If you don't have a jar, you can add ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.
