I first encountered this idea when I attended a Pro Blogger conference way back when on the Gold Coast. They knew they were feeding people who were social media crazy and a lot of us were foodies of course, so the food was pretty amazing, given they were feeding over 700 fussy peeps. Anyway, this salad arrived one lunchtime (or a version of it) and I thought, I can do that...and here it is.

I love that you can make more or less depending on the occasion. Everyone loves it, and you look like a superstar.

Place asparagus and beans into Varoma dish. Place the eggs into the steaming basket and insert into Thermomix bowl. Fill with water. Cook 5 min/100°C/speed 2.


Set Varoma into position and steam 11 min/Varoma/speed 2.


Place the veggies straight into an ice bath so they keep their bright green colour or cook more time if you would like a more cooked veggie.


Cool, peel and slice eggs.


Place all salad ingredients onto a large platter.


To make dressing, place all ingredients into clean dry Thermomix bowl and blend 20 sec/speed7. Drizzle over salad and garnish with additional parsley leaves.
