Spring Salad with Asparagus, Cucumber, and Peas

We wanted to make a salad that both took advantage of fresh produce but also incorporated interesting textures and bright flavors. We love the peppery radishes, the cool spiralized cucumbers and the ribbons of asparagus that pair perfectly with feta & parmesan cheese.

Use your favorite dressing (just about anything will work!) or use the creamy herb dressing below.
