Warm Potato and Asparagus Salad

Warm Potato and Asparagus Salad

Happy Early Saturday Morning! And Happy First Day of December!

Can you believe it’s already here? I don’t know about you but I’m all about the holidays already. The tree is set up, gift lists are created and I’m already thinking about holiday baking and recipes.

Yesterday I made this Warm Potato & Asparagus Salad and thought it would be perfect as a holiday side. It is warm which everybody welcomes on a cold December night.

It copiously serves six but with some simple math can easily be made to feed twelve or twenty-four even. And, well, it is delicious with its warm shallot dressing and a hint of anchovies.

P.S. If you like anchovies, by all means, use more than a hint.

P.P.S. This potato and apple salad.

Warm Potato and Asparagus Salad Recipe





  • 1.75 pounds baby potatoes, cut in half
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • A small bunch of baby asparagus, cut in half
  • 2 ounces anchovy fillets in oil, drained and chopped


Place the potatoes in salted water in a large saucepan. Boil over high heat until tender but firm, 18 to 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander. Immediately sprinkle them white with wine.

Boil the eggs. Shell and cut them into wedges.

In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a large pan. Warm the dressing over medium heat. Add the shallot, potatoes, asparagus, and anchovies.

Toss frequently for 3 to 5 minutes, until the salad is warm.

Plate the salad right away. Pour the remaining dressing in the pan over it.

Top with egg wedges.
