Uncle Roy's Old Fashioned Ramp Dressing

A vinaigrette from the north side of the hills.

This lite vinaigrette is a blend of canola oil and vinegar, infused with the unique flavor of ramps, which are a seasonal delicacy in the Appalachians. This blend offers the perfect amount of ramp flavor in heart healthy vinaigrette. Ramps, or wild leeks, grow wild in the Appalachian Mountains. This springtime delicacy only grows in certain areas, under certain conditions and are usually found on the north side of the hill. The location of ramp “patches” can be closely guarded family secrets handed down from generation to generation. Uncle Roy hunted for ramps most of his 94 years and we wanted to honor him by naming this dressing for him and lending it the ramp flavor that he loves.
