Spring Salad with Claytonia, Asparagus and Ramp Dressing

Head to your local farmers market and start picking out these fleeting spring ingredients for an exceptional salad.

Claytonia, which looks like mini lily pads has a nice clean taste and crisp bite. Flowering Claytonia

Baby Dandelion greens have a sharp taste that is a nice balance to the Claytonia. Baby Red Rib Dandelion

You can’t go wrong with spring asparagus.  Simply blanch for 1-2 minutes then put in an ice bath to stop the cooking.  I then quickly saute with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.Spring Asparagus

Salad dressing includes a little spicy brown mustard, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and finely chopped ramps.  This salad comes together really nicely and only takes around 10 minutes to make. Spring Salad
