A lovely springtime salad to serve as a side dish for your next spring party.


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped into ribbons
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. capers, minced
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan, grated, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tbsp. whole grain mustard
  • ¼ tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil


Turn on broiler. Trim ends off of asparagus, season with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil for 5 minutes, or until slightly charred and cooked through. Set aside.

Place eggs in a small pot. Cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Turn off heat, and let sit for 5 minutes. Transfer to an ice bath after 5 minutes, peel, and set aside.

Combine garlic, capers, parmesan, mustard, hot sauce, lemon juice, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk to combine, then slowly stream in ½ cup olive oil until thick. Season to taste with salt.

To serve, toss asparagus and kale with dressing, and transfer to plate. Top with sliced eggs, and grate more parmesan on to garnish.
