Ramps, Sugar Snap Peas, Pea Tendrils: An Embarrassment of Seasonal Riches
If you find yourself hitting the jackpot of April produce, there's one dish to make—and this is it. It's a bracing and bright tangle of sautéed ramps (though you could use scallions, if ramps aren't available in your area) and crisp-tender sugar snaps, with baby squash thrown in at the end of the cooking so it softens but still remains toothsome. Toss in a few handfuls of pea tendrils and walnuts just before serving, and you'll never be happier that spring is (finally!) here.
