Eggs (dyed or not!) will always have a reserved spot on the Easter menu—they're symbols of renewal.
Makes: 8 servings
Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 5 mins
- 3 bunches asparagus (about 3 pounds), tough ends snapped off
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 small shallot, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon, crushed
- 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
- 1/2cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 2 large eggs, hard-boiled
- In a large, deep skillet, add enough salted water to reach a depth of 2 inches; bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water and let stand until chilled. Drain and pat dry.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the apple cider vinegar, shallot, mustard, tarragon and orange peel. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until combined; season with salt and pepper.
- Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half, then press through a sieve into a small bowl. Toss the asparagus with some of the vinaigrette. To serve, drizzle with more dressing and top with the eggs.
- No sieve to break up the eggs? Just finely chop them.
