Snap Peas and Asparagus Salad

My husband likes asparagus and I like snap peas.  This was the perfect recipe combing both.  The recipe can be found in The Vegetable Butcher: How to Select, Prep, Slice, Dice, and Masterfully Cook Vegetables from Artichokes to Zucchini, page 237.  It includes radishes and a radish vinaigrette dressing.  While I do not like radishes the combination was quite good.  The varying hues of greens and the red of radishes make this salad gorgeous and the flavors delicious.
