Ingredients

2 1/2 ounces ramps or scallions

1 red onion

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided

 

2 tablespoons lemon juice
zest from 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon sugar

 

2 tablespoons minced parsley

2 tablespoons minced mint

1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds

1/2 bulb fennel, thinly sliced

1 cup snap peas, trimmed and sliced in half lengthwise

Miners lettuce and sprouts to garnish (optional)

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 425° F. Trim the roots off of the ramps. Peel the onion and cut into 1 inch wedges. Toss the ramps and onions with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, separate out the onions, setting them aside, then finely chop the ramps and place them in a large bowl.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 cup olive oil, the lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, parsley and mint to the large bowl with the ramps. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the dressing is well mixed. Add the quinoa and  toss to combine. Just before serving add the roasted red onions, pumpkin seeds, fennel and peas. Toss well. Serve with miners lettuce and sprouts.
