Uncle Roy's Old Fashioned Ramp Dressing
Uncle Roy hunted for ramps most of his 94 years, and we couldn't think of a better way to honor him than naming this dressing Uncle Roy's Old Fashioned Ramp Dressing.
Ramps, or wild leeks, grow wild in the Appalachian Mountains. This springtime delicacy only thrives under certain conditions, usually being found on the north side of the hill. Ramps are so treasured for their flavor and seasonality that the location of ramp "patches" are often closely guarded family secrets -- handed down from one generation to the next.
Uncle Roy's Old Fashioned Ramp Dressing is a light vinaigrette made from a blend of canola oil and vinegar, and then infused with the unique flavor of ramps. Try it in recipes like Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries and Feta Cheese for a unique and sophisticated dish.
