It’s been a while since I posted and I couldn’t wait any longer…the recipes are piling up and I want to share. The reason for my absence? I won’t bore you with all the details, but it has to do with consolidating all my web hosting accounts in a feeble attempt to save some money over the next few years. Sounds good. Alas, the first web site migration has been a nightmare. (Yes, I did burst into tears with tech support. The poor guy did not know what to do, so the call ended very quickly. But he got the immediate problem fixed fast.)

I haven’t posted to Backyard Grocery because I was waiting to migrate this site. However, I think I’m going to wait a little bit longer.

So, this week’s local meal is chicken salad with ramp mustard. Ramps are lovely onion type things that grow wildly around my parts. I’ve been looking for them on my morning walks with the dog, but haven’t found any yet. That could be that until this morning I didn’t actually know what they looked like (I thought they looked like wild onions, but no). Tomorrow I hope to have some luck.

Ramps are in season right now, so it feels appropriate to eat things with ramps in it. I keep Bigg Riggs ramp mustard and ramp vinegar on hand at all times…they are both beautifully flavorful condiments.

This recipe was born out of a need to use some leftover roasted chicken, the last of my spring radishes, and a deep love of chicken salad. The ramp mustard and radishes add a tangy twist to this old favorite. Hopefully in the next few days I can get my hands on some ramps and make this again with the addition of the fresh ramps.
