Ingredients

Asparagus Salad

  • 4 large eggs, hard boiled and sliced
  • 2 lbs asparagus

  • 2 large avocados, diced
  • 1 cup slivered or chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup green onion, finely chopped

Asparagus Salad Dressing

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Bring large pot full of water to a boil (I used the same I boiled eggs in previously). In the meanwhile, to trim asparagus snap the end of one spear and cut remaining asparagus same length. Then cut into 2 inch pieces, add to boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and fill pot with ice + cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
  2. Preheat ceramic non-stick skillet on medium heat and add almonds. Cook until fragrant and toasted, stirring occasionally. About 3-5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, add olive oil, lemon zest and juice, soy sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and whisk with a fork.
  4. In a large salad bowl, add drained cooked asparagus, eggs, tomato, avocado, almonds, green onion and pour dressing on top. Gently mix to combine and serve immediately.

Store: Refrigerate leftovers for up to 24 hours.

Make Ahead: Refrigerate salad and dressing covered separately for up to 24 hours. Combine before serving.
