Spring Salad with Claytonia, Asparagus and Ramp Dressing

By Seth Fera-Schanes

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
