This Asparagus Salmon Egg Salad is truly a favorite spring salad and perfect for Good Friday. This salad is so pretty that many times, it makes it’s way to our Easter Table. The colors are perfect and it is a great solution for all those Easter Eggs.

You can use fresh salmon  but I also like to use leftover salmon. Either way, it is a fantastic quick and easy recipe with amazing flavors. If you can find the milder and sweeter white asparagus, fantastic. I have made this salad with green asparagus and it is also delish.
