  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced basil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 8 cups lettuce leaves (Romaine, Butter or Red Leaf), torn or chopped
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 4 medium hard-boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into 8 wedges


  • Whisk together the vinegars, salt, honey, mustard and fresh herbs. Drizzle in the olive oil while whisking vigorously to emulsify. Set aside.
  • Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus to the water and cook 3 to 5 minutes until just tender but still firm. Remove and rinse under cold water to stop from cooking further.
  • Toss together asparagus, lettuce, olives, onion and capers with half the prepared dressing. Place the salad mixture on a serving platter and arrange eggs and tomatoes around the outer edge. Serve additional dressing on the side in a small serving bowl.
