Asparagus Egg and Bacon Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

asparagus with egg

It’s spring and asparagus is in season!  Asparagus has been on my vegetable hit list for quite some time.

Both of my kids detest the vegetable so I’ve been desperately searching for one recipe that might, just might, make their eyebrows perk and their taste buds surrender.

Admittedly, I grew up eating very little asparagus— mainly steamed.  And, I didn’t like it either. So, the hunt was not only for my kids but, myself as well.

I finally hit the jackpot with a recipe a stumbled upon over at  It’s an asparagus salad with bacon egg and vinaigrette.  It’s quite easy to make, high in fiber and protein, and it’s low carb.  Not that we’re counting carbs but, BONUS.

The crunch and flavor of the bacon against the backdrop of the egg and asparagus is delicious.  Top it off with some Dijon vinaigrette and you’ll be eating this for lunch AND dinner!

Pictured above is the salad vegetarian style—- no bacon–and it’s still tangy and tasty.
