Asparagus with an Egg and Cilantro Dijon Vinaigrette

 

Tawnya shaving asparagus
This recipe was the appetizer we made at the Paris cooking class.  We picked up the asparagus at the farmers market that day! I absolutely LOVED the vinaigrette. It was such a cool way of adding herbs, and adding eggs? Never would have thought of that.  I would make this vinaigrette and serve over almost anything: Steak, Chicken, Veggies, or even toasted bread.
Bon Appétit!
Ingredients:
1 lb of white asparagus (can use green, just don’t need to peel.)
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped (or use a fork) 
1 shallot, finely diced
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tbsp Cider vinegar
1/2 cup Extra Virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
             

Directions:
Peel and rinse the asparagus. Put them in salted and boiling water until just cooked through. (maybe 3-7 minutes.)
