Dandelion Salad Recipe
This salad is my all time favorite, it’s an unusual green salad that has a bite to it but it’s delicious, this is a raw dandelion salad with a dijon vinaigrette. I like to mix it ahead of time so that the greens become a little softer and marinated with the flavors of the vinaigrette.
Prep time: 15 min
Makes 4 servings
1 teaspoon green onions, minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper, freshly ground
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch of dandelion greens (about 6 cups), rinsed and dried
1 anchovy, finely chopped
1 ounce portion of Parmesan cheese
In a small bowl, prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together the green onions, mustard, vinegar.
Slowly whisk in the olive oil blend until combined.Season to your taste with salt and pepper.
In a salad bowl, toss the dandelion greens with the vinagrette.
Top with grated Parmesan and anchovy.
This salad can have various substitutions, serve with crispy bits of warm bacon or try substituting Roquefort cheese for the Parmesan, or adding toasted pine nuts or walnuts. The possibilities are endless.
