Roasted Asparagus with Eggs and Smoked Salmon

This easy make-ahead salad comes together in just 15 minutes.

"This simple, nourishing dish is high in protein thanks to smoked salmon and eggs," says Katzie Guy-Hamilton, chef and director of food and beverage at Equinox. It's ideal for lunch meal prep but you can also serve it for a savory breakfast or quick weeknight dinner.

Pro tip: To make this dish even heartier, pack a piece of sourdough bread. Toast it at your office then drizzle with olive oil and pile the eggs, salmon, and asparagus on top.
