French Fridays with Dorie – Bacon, Eggs and Asparagus Salad

As strange as the name sounds, this salad packs a mighty impressive punch. As a whole, it’s completely outside of my norm; I would certainly eat any of the ingredients on their own, but putting them together never occurred to me (besides the bacon & egg, of course). And since I’m not a fan of the yolk, I fried just the white for a nice little scramble. It’s not exactly as Dorie planned, but it’s pretty darn close… and it made a nice, solo lunch for me yesterday afternoon.

I like the white bits of your fried egg in the salad. It’s actually a nice twist!

This salad wasn’t the “norm” for us either but we were very pleasantly surprised with the unique flavor combination. Your looks yummy and I like how you just added the egg whites to suit your tastes.

Hey, the scrambled white works and it cuts down on some calories! This salad is by no means a light meal if we follow the recipe as written. 🙂

New combination of ingredients for us too, but we loved this salad! Yours looks great, and I’m glad you found a way to enjoy it without the yolk.

Beautiful, vivid colors in your photos! Also love the whole design of your webpage, especially the banner and customized social “buttons”.

Your salad looks wonderful, Jessica! What a great idea to scramble the egg whites only. I really like how everyone has adapted this salad to their own tastes!

I like your take on this salad… I at first thought that you had put feta on top, but it’s an egg! 🙂 It looks yummy good!

Jessica, you’ve created a beautiful salad and I would love this for lunch myself;-)

The salad looks beautiful and cooking only the white must certainly qualify it as heart healthy, don’t you think? 😉

One of the things I like so much about FFWD is seeing all the different interpretations of the same recipe. Great job.

I love your version and pictures! Like Kate, I also thought the egg whites were feta cheese. This morning I woke up realizing that this salad is probably the best approximation the French have to a Cobb salad… or would it be the other way around?

Beautiful results – looks like a gorgeous chopped salad. I am with you about the runny yokes and could not eat them myself. Nana loves them so this was a home run for her, but I am waiting till my hubby and boys (all runny egg lovers) are all home to test this one out in full. Nice to know I can twist it around as you did for myself. Great job !!
