Ingredients

Salad

  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch (1-pound) thin asparagus tough ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 container (5-ounce) baby arugula

Vinaigrette

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt preferably full-fat
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large lemon zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

Salad

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare an ice bath.
  • Bring a small saucepan full of water to a boil. Carefully add the eggs. Cook 6 minutes and 30 seconds or to desired doneness. Transfer to the bowl of ice water. Let stand for 2-3 minutes. Peel and cut in half.
  • Place asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and black pepper. Roast for 5-6 minutes.

Vinaigrette

  • Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. (It may not look like it's coming together at first, but keep whisking.)

To Serve

  • Place arugula on a salad plate. Top with a fourth of the roasted asparagus. Drizzle with some of the vinaigrette. Add two egg halves per plate and serve immediately.

Notes

If you're organized, boiling the eggs, roasting the asparagus and whisking the vinaigrette together can all be done in approximately the same amount of time.
