How to make asparagus salad:

Snap off tough ends of asparagus and remove scales with a knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Place in 11 x 7 x 2-inch baking dish and add water. Cover with plastic wrap (heavy-duty) and microwave on High for 6 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Cover and chill.

Watercress Dressing: Mix yogurt, watercress, onions, parsley, lemon juice, mustard, salt, tarragon and pepper or in blender (cover top) and process until smooth. Cover and chill. Yields 1 cup.

To Serve: Spoon 1/2 cup chilled asparagus onto each of 6 lettuce-lined salad plates. Put 2 tablespoons Watercress Dressing over each salad. Reserve remaining dressing for later use. Top each salad evenly with chopped pimento. Yields 6 servings.
