3 hard-boiled egg whites, quartered
6 asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
2 cups mixed lettuce greens
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp dried oregano
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
In a medium-sized pot, bring water to a boil. Add the asparagus spears and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until they become tender-crisp. Drain the asparagus and immediately transfer them to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. This will help retain their bright green color and crispness. After a couple of minutes, remove the asparagus from the ice water and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, dried oregano, sea salt, and black pepper. This will be the dressing for your salad.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the mixed lettuce greens, cherry or grape tomatoes, cooked asparagus, and quartered hard-boiled egg whites.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss to coat all the ingredients evenly.
Transfer the salad to a serving plate or bowl.
Garnish the salad with some additional chopped fresh herbs or a sprinkle of dried oregano, if desired.
Serve the "Egg-cellent Asparagus and Tomato Salad" immediately and enjoy!
