French food Friday - mustard vinaigrette

Last week saw the start of the white asparagus season and although the first of the season are expensive, they are worth every centime as they are delicious.

I toyed with  the idea of making a risotto with them but ended up eating them with a simple but tasty mustard vinaigrette and a soft boiled egg. French Boyfriend loved the vinaigrette and in typical French fashion mopped up every drop with his bread.   

Note it works with salad or asparagus.

Bon vendredi à tous, Leeann
