Ingredients
  • 1 pound medium to thick asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, stems trimmed even with caps
  • 4 medium radishes, halved lengthwise and sliced thin crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch watercress, coarse stems discarded
  • 1/4 -pound piece Parmesan, room temperature
Directions

With a sharp knife, cut asparagus diagonally into very thin slices and transfer to a large bowl. Halve large mushrooms. Slice mushrooms very thin and add with radishes to asparagus. Toss salad gently.

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, mustard and salt. Add oil in a stream, whisking, and whisk until emulsified. Drizzle dressing over asparagus salad and toss gently. Grind pepper over salad.

Spread watercress on a platter and top with asparagus salad. With a vegetable peeler, shave 1/2 to 3/4 of Parmesan into curls over salad, reserving remaining Parmesan for another use.
