Asparagus Salad With Hard-Boiled Eggs

It’s Asparagus Season in Germany! We Germans are fond of white asparagus, but only old varieties like Huchels alpha or Schwetzinger Meisterschuß have still the real „asparagus flavour“. They are hard to find and … expensive. I prefer the green asparagus, it needs no foil or mounds and it is easier to cut. For the white asparagus workers from other countries go out every morning before sunup and pick asparagus by digging a small hole in the mound, sticking a sharp knife into the dirt, aiming for the base of the shoot, carefully pulling out the shoot and filling in the hole with sand using a trowel. Green asparagus is so much easier to harvest.

    This does look tasty. I love fresh asparagus and really want to find a good salad for it. This may be it (but not for GFGF). I never knew white asparagus was so difficult to harvest.
