  • 6 jumbo asparagus, peeled
  • 1 bulb fennel
  • 4 Easter egg radishes
  • 12 haricot verts, trimmed and halved lengthwise

  • 1/4 cup fresh chervil leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup Tarragon Dressing

  1. Prepare an ice-water bath. Set a colander in ice-water bath and set aside. Using a vegetable peeler, thinly shave asparagus. Thinly slice fennel and radishes lengthwise on a mandoline. Place asparagus, fennel, radishes, and haricots verts in colander in ice-water bath until chilled. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.

  2. Place chilled vegetables in a large bowl and add frisee, chervil, and parsley leaves; add dressing and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
