How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, tarragon, mustard, pepper, sugar, shallot, and 3/4 teaspoon of the salt.

Step 2

Bring water and remaining 3 tablespoons salt to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high. Remove and discard tough ends of asparagus spears. Place asparagus in boiling water; cook until tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cool water; pat dry.

Step 3

Arrange asparagus on a serving platter. Drizzle with vinaigrette, and toss lightly to coat. Top with grated eggs. Serve warm or at room temperature.
