Ingredients

for the dressing

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

for the salad

  • 6 rashers streaky bacon
  • 6 medium asparagus spears
  • 2 cups mixed baby leaf salad
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 small avocado peeled and sliced into 8 strips
  • a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • To prepare the dressing, add all ingredients to a small mixing bowl and whisk together well to combine. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, 180 for fan assisted.
  • Wrap each asparagus spear with bacon so that it covers the stalk. Arrange the asparagus spears across a shallow oven tray and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Roast for 18-20 minutes until the asparagus is tender and the bacon is crisp and golden.
  • Whilst the asparagus is cooking, add the eggs to a pan of water so that they are covered. Bring to a boil then simmer for 4-5 minutes. Rinse immediately under cold water, peel and set aside.
  • Add the salad leaves to a serving bowl along with the sliced avocado. Arrange the asparagus on the plate.
  • Slice the eggs in half and add to the serving bowl.
  • Drizzle over the dressing to serve.
