Ingredients

½ cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. grated lemon zest
1 tsp. tarragon
½ tsp. pepper
1 lb. red potatoes, cut into ½-in. cubes
1 lb. asparagus, cut into ½-in. pieces
2 cups frozen baby peas, thawed
4 scallions, minced
¼ cup finely diced rhubarb or celery

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, tarragon and pepper.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes for 7 minutes. Add the asparagus and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 3 minutes.
  3. Place the peas in a colander, and drain the potatoes and asparagus into the colander. Drain well and transfer to the bowl of dressing, and toss well.
  4. Add the scallions and rhubarb, and toss again. Before serving, let it sit for at least 30 minutes so that the potatoes can absorb some of the dressing.

Kid-approved tweak: Omit the asparagus and scallions. Double up on the peas.
