Asparagus Salad
  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time
  • 6Servings


  • 3 pounds thick asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 large egg, hard-boiled


Trim the ends of the asparagus and, using a vegetable peeler, peel the bottom halves. In a large, deep skillet, bring a few inches of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Drizzle in the olive oil, whisking until combined; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Place the asparagus on a platter and drizzle with the dressing. Halve the hard-boiled egg and press through a sieve over the asparagus.
