  • 3 medium leeks, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced into half moons (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 ounces asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 1/2 cups)

  • 8 radishes, quartered
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
