Combine the asparagus, croutons and hard-boiled eggs in a salad bowl. Snip the parsley and chives over the top, then add the vinaigrette and mix well. Your asparagus salad is ready.
If (like me), you enjoy warm ingredients in salads, you can give the asparagus a few seconds in the microwave to reheat it, just before adding to the bowl.

If you do not have clarified butter, use a little oil instead.
! hour maximum, otherwise the croutons will go soggy.
