Fresh Asparagus & Poached Egg Salad with Browned Butter Sauce from Chat 'n Dish

This salad is a regular on French Provencal menus when asparagus is in season. The marriage of flavors when you serve eggs and asparagus together is fabulous and you’ll find it in many different dishes. From Italian Frittatas to French Quiches eggs and asparagus go hand in hand but my favorite is when they are served together in this salad! If you have never made a browned butter and toasted pecan dressing you are in for a treat! With the simple addition of a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice you also have a sauce that is perfect to serve with any white fish!

  1. It looks as though there are bread cubes or croutons as the base of the salad, yet there is no mention. What is that?

    The salad looks delicious!

  2. What a lovely creation! The brown butter sauce just made it more special and to die for! Can't wait to make this.

  3. Congrats of Chat'n Chew!!!
