I was not looking forward to this FFWD recipe so I had a nice surprise - it turned out to be a wonderful, light dinner, perfect for a warm spring evening. We used toasted pecans which were great but I want to try the hazelnut version, too. One egg per person was not enough for all that asparagus so we ended up having two eggs each, which was just right. I did not have any hazelnut oil so want to try that in the vinaigrette (I used grapeseed oil) AND I want to try roasted asparagus AND I want to have some cheese to accompany (Beemster Vlasskaas would be perfect)...so, I will be making this again! Another surprise was that my husband wanted some white wine with dinner. He doesn’t indulge often, and when he does, he usually doesn’t drink wine. The only white I had was a very light Chardonnay, Le Drunk Rooster, and it turned out to be an excellent match for the salad.
Another great thing about composed salads like this one is that everything can be prepared ahead of time. Serving is quick & easy!
