does anyone have a Dendelion Salad Recipe? has anyone made it? I'v used it in my Green Smoothies, but for some reason salad sounds so tempting. Joz

this is what i do:
chop the dandelion greens finely. add a little celtic or himalayan salt and massage briefly. then add plenty of minced red onion, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. sometimes i add some sumac powder as a lebanese friend taught me.
if you prefer a creamier salad, sub tahini, thinned a little if necessary, for some or all of the olive oil.
hope you like it! :)
btw, if your greens are very bitter then let the salad marinate til the next day and it'll start to mellow.

I hate to waste any part of the plant and they would look so pretty in the salad.

There is a recipe in Eating Without Heating -- by Sergei and Valya Boutenko that is very simple.
2 bunches dandelions
1 large avocado
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
chop the dandelions and avocado into a bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Very simple. I would suggest adding this book to your collection ... it has a lot of simple, wonderful recipes.

Thank you so much. I 'm off to my garden! Denelions sald tomorrow.
I do have Boutenko's book but did not think to look there> Joz

I like it best with a garlic tahini dressing - for people that don't love the bitterness of the green that works really well!
