This salad is a subconscious combination of several of the food52 contests that came out of small amounts of really fresh garden produce. In other words there weren't enough produce to do anyone dish and when I looked into the bowl I thought, "why didn't I come up with this recipe for, umm, about three of the contests?" Never mind all that it is a delicious combination that I will make again and again. I used David Chang's buttermilk ramp dressing for this but mtlabors dressing, right here at food52, will be what I make from here on out since ramps are now out of season. —thirschfeld
