    For the Dressing:

    1. Combine all of the ingredients for the dressing into a small blender and blend at high speed until smooth and creamy.

    For the Salad:

    1. First, wash and slice the veggies. Making sure to rinse the arugula as well before use.
    2. After the ends of the asparagus stalks are cut off, place 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil in a pan and sauté the asparagus until cooked. I like to keep them firm but with a nice char on them! /li>
    3. Layer the arugula in a large bowl and top with sliced radishes, beans, grilled asparagus, and edible flowers.
    4. Drizzle the salad with creamy tarragon mustard dressing.
    5. Garnish with sliced avocado, fresh cracked pepper, and enjoy!
