You want spring? You want hope? You want optimism? You want a salad? I do. Ramps, fiddleheads, asparagus — gimme spring. Gimme warm weather. Gimme grilling. Gimme spring now and give it to me all at once. No? Too bad, I'm taking it. That's what this salad does, wrenches spring and warm-weather cooking from winter's cold, dead hands.
As iconic a vegetable as ramps are, fiddleheads are so much cooler looking. All curled up on themselves like some crazy alien vegetable. Crunchy. Vibrant. And they're supposedly a great source of antioxidants, Omega 3, Omega 6, and iron. So this recipe takes spring and throws it all together: asparagus, fiddleheads, spring peas, three different preparations of vegetables and grilling. A glass (or two) of Robert Sinskey rosé and you're golden. Cause when you've been waiting for summer this long it's time to jump in to spring all at once.
