Charred Asparagus & Egg Salad

If you're looking for a salad that's a little heartier than leaves on a plate, look no further! Packed with protein from the eggs and a lovely charred flavour from the asparagus, you'll be kicking limp lettuce to the curb!



Serves 2

 

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • 340g asparagus, trimmed

  • 50ml Greek yoghurt

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 1 tbsp water

  • 150g rocket

  • A pinch salt and black pepper

Look for medium sized asparagus stalks for this dish. The thin ones can dry out rapidly when grilled or oven baked.

 

Method


  1. Begin by preheating your grill to a high heat.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add the eggs and cook for 6-8 minutes until they are hard-boiled or to your liking. Using a slotted spoon, remove the eggs from the water and place in a bowl of ice or cold water for a few minutes to halt the cooking process. Once the eggs are cold to the touch, peel them and cut into quarters.

  3. Place the asparagus on a baking tray and drizzle over olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Grill for 3 minutes until it is lightly charred, then remove from the grill and chop into 3 centimetre pieces.

  4. In a small bowl make the salad dressing by combining the yoghurt, lemon juice and seasoning – if the dressing is too thick just add a splash of water.

  5. Once it has reached your desired consistency, fold the rocket into the yoghurt mixture.

  6. To serve, arrange the rocket on a platter and top with the asparagus and hard-boiled eggs.
