When it comes to hosting friends for a lazy weekend lunch, I, Alexandra almost always turn to poached eggs.

With just a little technique know how, they are a simple way to bring a little #fancy to your meals. 

The base of this Asparagus & Poached Egg Salad recipe is one of my favorite spring vegetables- roasted asparagus spears.

Don’t like asparagus? No problem. Feel free to sub other in-season favorites like baby artichoke hearts, fava beans or new potatoes.
