Ingredients

  • 1- 1/2 lbs large asparagus, trimmed
  • salt, as needed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs water
  • 1 Tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, roughly chopped

Directions

  • Put asparagus into a large skillet of salted, boiling water. Boil until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain well; spread on paper towel to cool.
  • Meanwhile, to make aioli, mix mayonnaise with olive oil, water, lime juice, and garlic; reserve. Over a piece of wax paper or paper towel, force egg through a sieve with the back of a wooden spoon, making sure to scrape off the egg that clings to the underside of the sieve.
