Earlier today, we asked what spring foods you’re looking forward to. We welcomed asparagus and chives into our kitchen this week and thought we’d dress up the classic asparagus-and-poached-egg combo with a bright herb and lemon dressing. Serve this for brunch or dinner and celebrate the new season’s fresh flavor and color!
