  Combine the oil, lemon juice, tarragon, shallots and salt. Toss with
  the crab. Place in a covered container and refrigerate for several
  hours to let flavors blend.
  
  To serve, place an asparagus spear-half on each leaf of endive. Top
  with approximately 2-3 teaspoons Dijon Sauce and sprinkle with crab.
  
  Dijon Sauce: 2 egg yolks, room temperature 1 tablespoon rice wine
  vinegar 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 5 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1/2
  teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon slat 1 Dash of white pepper 1/2 cup
  vegetable oil 1/2 cup Creme Fraiche
  
  Place the egg yolks, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, sugar, salt and
  pepper in a blender. Blend for a few seconds. With the motor still
  running, add the oil in a slow steady stream until well incorporated.
  
  Remove the sauce to a bowl and whisk in the Creme Fraiche. Cover and
  refrigerate. This can be made several days in advance and kept in the
  refrigerator. Leftover sauce is wonderful with chilled artichokes.
