2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ cup olive oil
1 cup champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon Kosher flake salt

Directions for vinaigrette:
1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process for 1 minute in short bursts.
2. Transfer to a clean bottle or mason jar and store in the refrigerator for at least two hours before using so flavors will have time to open up.

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Slice peaches, lay out flat on a parchment covered sheet pan.
3. Brush gently with honey.
4. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, or until honey begins to caramelize.
5. Remove and cool.

Directions for salad:
1. Wash, rinse and dry greens. Tear them a little to create bite size pieces, about 2-inch-by-2-inch pieces.
2. Toss with asparagus, peas, radishes and peaches.
3. Garnish with chiles, microgreens and parmesan.
4. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
