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.
This recipe also appears in Cooking with Tenina, the cookbook you should all have on your shelf by now, or we really cannot stay friends!!

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.
