  7. Add bacon strips to a skillet and cook over medium-low heat, turning as needed, until the bacon is golden and crisp.
  8. Transfer bacon to a paper towel lined plate; let stand a minute, or until cooled enough to handle. Chop it into bits.
  9. Assemble the salad starting with the greens; distribute them evenly between 4 salad plates.
  10. Add the bacon, asaparagus, and walnuts.
  11. Shell the eggs; add to the salad and cut in half.
