Asparagus Bacon and Egg Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette is a fresh, light alternative to a traditional salad. Serve it alongside your favorite grilled meat.
When I look back at my posts this summer there is one thing that kind of stands out to me. I have been on a salad roll! There has been Beet Salad, Cucumber Salad, Succotash Salad. This Asparagus Salad is going to make it on the list too!!
Asparagus Salad with Bacon and Egg
I decided to change up one of my favorite veggies this week and make something totally different….an asparagus salad with hard boiled egg and some yummy bacon! Then simply mixed up a dijon vinaigrette to drizzle over the top.
I have been using chicken bacon lately and think it is a great substitution. It fits into my daily macro count a little better with less fat.
I have a newfound love of dijon mustard. It has never been my go-to for some reason. I’ve always been a yellow mustard kind of gal. But this Summer I have fallen hard! Making a vinaigrette is super easy and goes perfection with this salad.
