Little Gems, Asparagus, and Peas with Creamy Mustard Vinaigrette
This pretty composed salad is oh so very spring. It's a tumble of asparagus, peas, and Little Gem lettuces, which have the crunch of romaine but small enough leaves that you can serve them whole. The make-ahead tangy mustard vinaigrette has a surprise ingredient: nigella seeds. They provide a delicate allium note—like scallions, only subtler.
