Asparagus, Peas, and Radishes with Fresh Tarragon

To save time, the asparagus in this bright salad can be cooked, cooled, and dried, and then wrapped up and refrigerated up to a day in advance. Also try: Leek and Potato Galette

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 25 mins
  • servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds asparagus, tough ends discarded, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 bunch (about 1 pound) radishes, greens discarded, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh tarragon, coarsely chopped
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Prepare a large bowl of ice water, and line a baking sheet with a double thickness of paper towels.

  2. Step 2

    Add asparagus to pot; cook until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. With a slotted spoon or wire skimmer, transfer to ice bath. Let cool completely, then transfer to prepared baking sheet and pat dry. (Wrap in plastic and refrigerate up to 1 day.)

  3. Step 3

    In a large pot with a lid, heat butter over medium. Add asparagus and peas. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are heated through, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in radishes and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
