Cook the spelt in salted boiling water for 20 minutes until al dente. Drain. Toss in the lemon juice and olive oil and set aside to cool.

Use a mandolin or potato peeler to make thin fennel and zucchini shavings. Toss into the cooled spelt, adding the asparagus, herbs and salad leaves.

Season with sea salt and transfer to a large platter before topping with the ricotta salata.
