This chilled asparagus salad with catalan dressing feels so refreshing and cleansing! It’s also very easy to make and takes less than 15 minutes to make!


  • 1 pound asparagus (trimmed)
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 4 slices turkey bacon


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 shallot (finely chopped)
  • 810 cherry tomatoes (finely chopped)


  1. In a bowl whisk oil and lemon juice until they’ve emulsified (about 20 seconds).
  2. Whisk in white wine vinegar and add the remaining ingredients for the dressing. Whisk and set aside.
  3. Bring a pot of water (big enough to hold the asparagus) with 1 tsp salt to boil. Add asparagus and boil for 4 minutes. Drain and shock in cold water. Drain again, place the asparagus on to a plate and pat dry.
  4. Pour dressing on top of the asparagus.
  5. Quarter the egg and place on top of the dressing. Serve cold
