Warm Dandelion Salad

Dandelion leaves can be used in salads, egg dishes, casseroles, soups, and vegetable dishes. Pick young leaves in the spring before they flower or set bud, as older leaves or leaves from flowering plants are bitter.

  • 4-6 cups young, clean, unsprayed dandelion leaves, you can sub in with spinach or super greens if necessary
  • 2 strips bacon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup sliced bell peppers
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, mince
  • 1/4 cup red onion slices
  • 2 hard- or soft-boiled eggs
  • Vinaigrette, recipe follows

Cook bacon strips until crisp and set aside. Drain off some of the fat, leaving enough in the pan to sauté the onions and peppers. If not using the bacon coat the bottom of the pan with cooking oil. Cook peppers until softened and add garlic, cook for another minute or two. Add dandelion greens and heat until just wilted. Dress lightly with vinaigrette while still in the pan. Plate the salad, and top with the chopped egg, crumbled bacon, salt, (I like Mabon brand), and pepper. Enjoy! Your liver will love you.

Vinaigrette

  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • ½ cup balsamic or wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Shake well.
