How to make it

  • For dressing: -----------
  • Whisk first lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper in small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil.
  • Note: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature and rewhisk before using.
  • For salad: ----------
  • Fill large bowl with lightly salted ice water; stir until salt dissolves.
  • Cook asparagus in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. (I steamed the asparagus)
  • Drain, reserving 3 cups cooking liquid.
  • Transfer asparagus to bowl of salted ice water to cool.
  • Place green onions in another large bowl; pour hot reserved asparagus cooking liquid over onions and let stand until cool, about 30 minutes.
  • Drain asparagus and green onions well. Transfer onions to clean kitchen towel and squeeze dry.
  • Note: Asparagus and onions can be made 1 day ahead. Wrap separately in several layers of paper towels, then enclose in resealable plastic bags and refrigerate.
  • Combine green onions, cucumbers, and herbs in mixing bowl.
  • Add dressing; toss to coat.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange asparagus on platter. Spoon cucumber mixture over and serve.

    Sounds like it would taste great, but it looks too green. I'd add some shredded carrots or red cabbage, just to add different colors and textures. The eyes eat first, you know. I've been looking for chervil everywhere so I could make a proper pot of potato leek soup, but it's nowhere to be found. If I can get my grubby little hands on some, I'll try this and let you know how it turns out. Thanks!
