Classics, Golden Oldies, a side dish from back in the day—whatever you call them, those timeless, seasonal recipes are usually real keepers. This one has it all—asparagus in the spring, a quick dressing and a good-looking presentation.
Quick cook asparagus after snapping off any tough ends—1/2” of water in a sauté pan for a minute or so, will do it. Have a bowl of ice water ready to cool down the drained asparagus. Mix the simple dressing, dry the asparagus, toss in the dressing and arrange on serving plate. Coarsely grate a hard-boiled egg over the stalks.
• 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar or lemon juice
