Asparagus Vinaigrette

Even though, it seems,  we can get asparagus year round,  I think of it as a Spring time vegetable.  I just can't seem to get enough of it.  This side dish or salad is especially good!

2 eggs
1 1/2 lbs. asparagus, trimmed
2 T. Tarragon vinegar (I used white wine vinegar and some tarragon)
1 T.  chopped shallot
1 T. Dijon mustard
1/8 t. pepper
1/4 t. salt                                                                         
1/3 cup olive oil

Hard-cook the eggs, according to directions found here.  Set aside.

Steam the asparagus until tender.  Sprinkle with 2 t. salt.  Whisk the rest of the ingredients together and pour over the asparagus.  Top with 2 finely chopped hard-cooked eggs.

  6. We love asparagus here, and we particularly love it chilled with a vinaigrette. This version of steamed with a dijon vinaigrette and the eggs looks really delicious. I need to try this and try it soon.

  14. We had asparagus for dinner tonight with lemon pepper fish. But it wasn't nearly as tasty as your recipe looks. I might give it a go next time.

  15. This sounds like a great recipe Kitty. I'm not a big fan of asparagus, but this looks like a recipe my Dad would enjoy. His favorite asparagus is the white kind that we now see more in the States. He had it in Germany a few years ago, and it really is a spring food there, as they only have it about 2 weeks out of the year. He liked when he could time his trips when it was asparagus season, and he would eat that every day.

    Your recipe sounds like a tasty new way to try serving it to him, so thanks for sharing it at Your Cozy Home Party!
