Author Notes: Serve with a crisp green salad like romaine or iceberg, or as a sauce for seafood. Foraging for the ramps was an adventure. We tramped over the river and through the woods to fetch them—hence the name of this recipe. mrslarkin

Food52 Review: I was really pleased to test this recipe because I love Green Goddess Dressing, and I love ramps. The idea to combine the two was, I thought, brilliant. I wasn't disappointed. My dressing turned out a bit lighter than the one in the original photo, but the dressing is SO delicious I have literally been eating it with a spoon. And, now it's about to sauce some razor clams for dinner... ChefJune
