Hard-cooked eggs aren't just for decorating. Here's another seasonal way to enjoy them: in asparagus mimosa, a classic dish named for the pretty yellow-and-white flower. Press a peeled hard-cooked egg through a fine, stainless steel sieve to create the bright and fluffy garnish.


  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 large hard-cooked egg

  • 2 pounds steamed asparagus


  1. Whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Push egg through a fine sieve. Spoon vinaigrette over asparagus, and top with grated egg.
