Ingredients

For the vinaigrette:
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
For the salad:
  • 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce) can artichoke hearts in water, drained and halved
  • 1 tomato, cored and chopped
  • 1 bunch watercress, tough stems removed

Directions

To prepare the dressing: In a small bowl, combine the vinegar mustard, cumin, and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Whisk to blend. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil, mixing until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Set aside.

To prepare the salad: Fill a medium bowl with 2 cups of ice cubes and cover with cold water. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus and blanch until tender but not mushy, about 3 minutes. Drain the asparagus in a colander and transfer to the ice water bath to stop the cooking. Drain again and place on a paper towel-lined plate to dry. Cut the asparagus stalks into thirds.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the blanched asparagus, parsley, artichokes, tomatoes, and watercress. Whisk the vinaigrette to combine and pour over the salad. Toss to coat and serve.
