Ingredients
  • 1 pound Asparagus Spears – trimmed & peeled* (about 2 bunches)
  • 2-3 Large Hard-Boiled Eggs – peeled & whites and yolks separated*
  • 2 TBS Chives – finely sliced, divided
  • 3 TBS Cooked Bacon - chopped
Dressing:
  • 1 TBS Shallots – finely minced
  • 2 TBS Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 6 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt & Ground Black Pepper
Optional for Garnish – Finely Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, Lemon Wedges, Capers, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Thinly Sliced Radishes
Instructions
  1. Blanch the asparagus: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season the water generously with salt. Add the asparagus and cook until bright in color and just fork tender, about 2-3 minutes depending on thickness.
  2. Shock the asparagus to stop the cooking*: Remove the asparagus immediately and transfer to a wide bowl filled with ice water. Set aside until completely chilled. Remove from water and transfer to a clean work surface lined with paper towels to thoroughly drain.
  3. Finely dice the hard-boiled eggs*: Keeping the yolks and whites separate, finely dice the egg whites and crumble the yolks using your hands. Set aside.
  4. Prepare the vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the shallots, vinegar and mustard. Slowly add in the oil, while whisking constantly, until emulsified. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Toss asparagus: Toss the asparagus with half of the dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Assemble: Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter. Top with diced eggs, chives and bacon. Garnish with optional toppings and serve with remaining dressing on the side. Serve and enjoy!
