Trim ends from asparagus (hold asparagus and break off ends - even off with a knife) and peel. Drizzle with olive oil, then rub to coat. Preheat Cuisinart™ Griddler using the closed Grill - Panini position to 375°F. When green indicator light is on, unit is ready. Arrange asparagus spears crosswise on the bottom grill plate, each about ½-inch apart; close. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes, remove to a plate and arrange more asparagus on the grill. Close and repeat until all asparagus is grilled. Sprinkle asparagus with salt, then drizzle with Raspberry Dijon Vinaigrette. Scatter shaved cheese over the top and serve.
