The beginning

You may have made asparagus salad before. But you probably don't know this recipe for white asparagus salad. It's worth it. Here's how it works: First peel the asparagus and cut off the ends. Cut the scallions into fine rings.


Cook the asparagus

Put the peeled asparagus in a large pot of salted and sugared water and bring it to the boil. Cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes. Then cut the asparagus into bite-sized pieces.


Boil the eggs

Now boil the eggs in a large pot for approx. 8 - 10 minutes. You can also use an egg boiler for this. Let the eggs cool briefly before peeling. Then separate the yolks from the whites and cut them into cubes.
