Recipe: Dandelion Salad with Winter Radishes

Salads with aromatic herbs
April 21, 2009

DandelionDandelion is emerging from winter dormancy, and producing new leaves.
To be honest, they're too few to be harvested, but spring leaves are sweet and tender, perfect for a small salad.
Dandelium contains many useful vitamins and minerals, like Calcium. So yes, it's infesting but don't call it weed! If you harvest dandelion, you will think you never have enough of it.


This is my salad: it's a small salad, but I harvested all ingredients, and that makes it great!
