I’ve been making this Asparagus salad for years, it never gets old! It’s the perfect Spring salad made with just a few simple ingredients – asparagus, hard boiled egg and bacon tossed with a Dijon vinaigrette. I usually eat this for lunch but this would also work as a side dish for Easter.

Asparagus Salad with Egg Bacon and Dijon Vinaigrette

This is one of my go-to salads this time of year. Asparagus and eggs are a match made in heaven, but not just for breakfast, it’s great for lunch too! I always keep hard boiled eggs on hand in my fridge to use throughout the week, therefore this salad came together in less than 10 minutes. And did you know you can also make hard boiled eggs in the air fryer?

  • Double or triple the recipe for meal prep.
  • You can keep it refrigerated 4 to 5 days.
  • Multiply the recipe to bring it to a potluck and serve it in a large bowl.
  • Eating seasonal means it’s inexpensive to make.

  1. What a fantastic salad! I am obsessed. I had a jar of homemade vinaigrette in my fridge somewhere (or I thought I did!) but couldn’t find it, so this time I used some of the good seasons vinaigrette I also had made up, but added a dollop of Dijon to it. So easy, so delicious, I can’t wait to make it for a friend, too. Though I might be too selfish, maybe I’ll
    Just share your recipe so they can make it themselves. 😉

  2. Another easy and delicious recipe!! Added some romaine, tomato, and grilled chicken to make it dinner. So good! 

  3. Thiis was really tasty! I added cooked shrimp and a crusty baguette on the side to fill me up a bit more and it was perfect!

    Made this for Easter Sunday. What a hit ! I will definitely be saving this recipe.
    I changed the dressing a touch. I used greek yogurt instead of the red vinegar and added some minced garlic.

  5. I love this recipe! As a vegetarian I skipped the bacon and added capers and feta for that saltiness and protein. So yummy!
