Perfect side dish or appetizer for your upcoming Easter or Passover/Pesach celebration! You should be able at this time of year to find fresh horseradish but if not, substitute with jarred (I like Bubbies® brand because it is about as close to fresh as you can get). Skip the egg if you want the vegan option. C/O NY Times. Update: and I very recently discovered that Trader Joe's offers a jarred horseradish that I really like, too. FYI 20 April 2017

How to Make Asparagus with Horseradish Vinaigrette

Step-by-Step

  1. Note: The original recipe calls for boiling the asparagus which you can do. However, I much prefer either lightly steaming, pan/outdoor grilling or roasting asparagus for superior taste and texture.
  2. In a small glass bowl whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Best if the vinaigrette is prepared 1 hour in advance.
  3. Once you have cooked the asparagus now arrange the spears on a serving platter.
  4. Pour the vinaigrette evenly over the asparagus.
  5. Sprinkle the chopped herb(s) over the asparagus and garnish with the hard boiled egg.

    Serve warm or at room temperature.
