This is a salad I made for my son who was cooking Umami burgers for us. We also had a fresh spinach salad with mrslarkin's green goddess dressing with ramps). This made for a wonderful meal. I have to confess this was the first time I have ever used ramps! As an avid fiddlehead forager, somehow I missed the calling to go on ramp tramps...but that will now change. —Sagegreen

Because I must follow a low oxalate diet I substituted bok choi for the ramp and adjusted the cooking time accordingly. The truffle oil makes the dish. Very good!
