Asparagus Salad

Made with fresh asparagus and a simple
red wine vinager dressing this is one
of my favorite vegetable dishes.
It's colorful and flavorful.
Sometimes I'll also add gorgonzola,
feta or fresh mozzarella cheese.

1 bunch fresh asparagus
1/2 cup olive oil, separated
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
12 capers, drained
2 eggs, hard boiled
dried chives to taste
1 fresh lemom for garnish
roasted red pepper for garnish

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the asparagus baking sheet and
sprinkle with salt and 1/4 cup olive oil.
Place in oven and roast until softened.
Peel the eggs, chop and set aside.
Combine the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil,
vinegar, sugar, capers and chives.
Remove the asparagus from the oven and plate,
pour the dressing over it and top with chopped egg.
Garnish with lemon and roasted red pepper slices.
