Asparagus salad @ Cesar's on Piedmont

Ate at Cesar's on Piedmont (Oakland) again this weekend. It was a great, as usual. One of the best things we ordered was the ensalada de esparagos - asparagus salad with moscatel vinaigrette.

Has anyone else had this? It was so bright and refreshing and tasted of spring. The asparagus was sliced thinly on the bias (about 1/4 inch slices or so), simply tossed with vinaigrette and IIRC toasted almonds. It seemed like the asparagus was raw or maybe barely blanched.

I want to recreate at home, so let me know if you can remember more details than I can.
