  3. Using a vegetable peeler, shave squash into ribbons, stopping at squash seeds. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey, remaining 2 teaspoons oil, and remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add asparagus mixture, shrimp, squash, and green onion, tossing to combine. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 hour.
