22 asparagus, average size 440 g
12 cups baby spinach 200 g
1/4 cup fresh dill, finely chopped 8 g
2 eggs size large, boiled, and finely grated
2 green onions/scallions, finely chopped
3 tbsp orange juice, concentrated 45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 65 mL


  1. Vinaigrette: in a medium-sized bowl, add green onions to the orange juice concentrate. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the oil gradually and whisk until emulsified.
  2. Salad: fill a pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Remove the hard parts of the asparagus. Plunge asparagus tips in boiling water. Boil until cooked but still slightly crunchy, for 2 to 5 minutes if they are very thin or for 7 to 10 minutes if they have a diameter the size of a finger.
  4. Drain the asparagus and immediately plunge them into icy water. Once they are cold, pat them dry with paper towels. Keep aside. Put the spinach in a large salad bowl. Add the asparagus cut into bite-sized pieces. Mix. Add dill, drizzle with vinaigrette and toss. Top with grated hard-boiled eggs.
