Asparagus Egg Bacon Salad

Not only is this a very tasty salad it is also gorgeous!  My kids had no clue they were eating asparagus in fact I am pretty sure they thought they were having green beans.  I tripled the recipe...

1 large hard boiled egg, peeled and sliced
1 2/3 cups chopped asparagus
2 slices cooked and crumbled center cut bacon
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
pinch salt and pepper, to taste

Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the asparagus and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until tender yet firm.
Drain and run under cold water to stop it from cooking further.
Set aside.
In a small bowl mix the Dijon, oil, vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Arrange the asparagus on a plate, top with egg and bacon and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
