Cook's Note: A photo in a food magazine caught my attention. I hadn't ever thought of pairing egg salad with asparagus. This pairing has lots of possibilities. It would make a lovely brunch side, a healthy lunch or an eye catching appetizer. I would suggest using thin asparagus spears and then two spears could be placed on each toast. Prepare egg salad ahead to meld flavors. It's a quick tartine to put together. Need a little zip? Try a squeeze of Sriracha in the egg salad. - Sue Ready

Ingredients for 4 tartines
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, mashed
  • 1 TB. Dijon mustard
