Asparagus with Lime Aioli, Egg and Green Onion
This tasty salad works well as a light main dish for brunch, lunch, or as a festive spring side dish.
- 1- 1/2 lbs large asparagus, trimmed
- salt, as needed
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 2 Tbs water
- 1 Tbs fresh lime juice
- 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
- 2 hard-cooked eggs, roughly chopped
- 3 Tbs thinly sliced green onion
- Put asparagus into a large skillet of salted, boiling water. Boil until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain well; spread on paper towel to cool.
- Meanwhile, to make aioli, mix mayonnaise with olive oil, water, lime juice, and garlic; reserve. Over a piece of wax paper or paper towel, force egg through a sieve with the back of a wooden spoon, making sure to scrape off the egg that clings to the underside of the sieve.
- Arrange asparagus on a platter, then drizzle with reserve aioli. Sprinkle with egg, then green onion. Lightly season with salt.
