Serve with a crisp salad green, like baby romaine or iceberg. Makes a really great sauce for seafood, too. —mrslarkin

Test Kitchen Notes

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
