Fresh Ramp Vinaigrette Recipe

We got an email just the other day that the ramps were in at the local farmers’ market just outside of Asheville. Yes, we have spies at the market!

Okay, not really but since this is WNC’s largest outdoor farm market, it is usually the first place that ramps can be found in our area — unless you go harvest them yourself.

So we thought we would share with you this nice fresh ramp vinaigrette recipe we found.

    This was absolutely delicious! The only problem was I couldn’t decide whether to refrigerate it or not. After watching it turn a little brownish within an hour I decided to put it in the fridge. It congealed a lot, I guess because of the olive oil. Should I have left it out? I figured it would only be good for a day or two but I only got one use out of it; glad I didn’t make a lot.

      Glad you enjoyed it. And yes olive oil will congeal after being in a refrigerator. You have to take the dressing out and let it warm up to room temperature again to get the same consistency. It should be just fine.
