Asparagus Salad with Mustard-Soy Dressing

Asparagus Salad with Mustard-Soy DressingRecipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Asparagus is tossed with an emulsified vinaigrette that's laced with soy sauce. Soy and ground mustard are a common combination in Japan, resulting in a unique wasabi-like flavor. Since the egg yolk goes into the dressing raw, use a pasteurized egg - most grocery stores stock them.
