Place the asparagus in a microwave-safe baking dish with ¼ cup water. Cover with vented plastic and microwave 3 min., until tender. Drain and let cool slightly.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tbsp water until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
On a large platter, arrange the greens. Top with the carrots, eggs, crab, and asparagus. Season eggs with salt and pepper. Spoon or drizzle dressing on top.


Cooked shrimp can be substituted for the jumbo lump crab.
