  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add asparagus, fennel and ham; sauté until vegetables are crisp and tender, about 8 minutes. Cool for 3 minutes.
  2. Toss vegetable mixture with salad blend, peppers and green onions. Whisk together mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper and remaining oil until smooth.
  3. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil; reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Break eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl; slip eggs into water. Poach, uncovered, until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken, 3-5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, toss salad with dressing. Divide salad among eight plates. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs from water; place one on top of each salad.
