A classic Italian salad, there are many versions of this dish. Sometimes the asparagus are not cut up, just topped with chopped hard-boiled eggs and vinaigrette. I like to cut them into pieces and toss everything together. Original recipe called for 1/4 cup olive oil.

1 pound asparagus
2 eggs, hard-boiled
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar or sherry vinegar, or 1 tablespoon each fresh lemon juice and vinegar

2 tablespoons parsley (fresh, chopped, or a mixture of parsley, chives and tarragon)
1 Salt

  1. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus. Steam for five minutes. Refresh with ice-cold water, then drain and dry on paper towels. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  2. Cut the boiled eggs in half, mince the yolks and whites separately, and season with salt and pepper

  3. In a salad bowl, whisk together the vinegar (or lemon juice and vinegar) and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the asparagus, capers and herbs, and toss together. Add the chopped egg yolks and whites, then toss together again and serve.
