Dandelion salad--TNT

My grandparents introduced this to me when I was maybe 6 or 7 I loved it then and still do to this day,
1 bunch of rinsed dandillion greens,slice thin, put in bowl, add evoo, red wine vinegar this is to your taste, I tend to like it rather tart, add 4-5 large diced hard cooked eggs, very thin sliced sweet onion,salt and fresh cracked black pepper...This what I put in mine, my kids like theirs with crisp fried and crumbled bacon or pancetta and of course fresh warm Italian bread with lots of butter

I've never made wine but salad my favorite thing. My grandparents had this salad at least once a week.

I think it is rather funny that they used the dandillion greens for the salad and we picked the dandillion heads for the wine -- guess we should all learn something there.

We sure could. Did they teach you to make the wine? I'd love to learn how.

Young tender dandelion greens is one of my favorite salads. I enjoy it mixed with fresh garlic chives, a little fresh thyme, evo, vinegar, and a sprinkling of parmigiano and locatelli or some feta.

If ya can't beatum, joinum. Interesting to hear that America's extravagant preoccupation with manicured ecologically unsound greenery is not purely an American phenomenon. Unfortunately, for some of us, the sunniest part of our property is a front yard in which it is socially unacceptable to plant a victory garden.

Thanks Kadesma. I think it not only tastes good but is healthy. Our garlic chives appear to be a gift from our feathered friends. They are a shade tolerant perennial that pops up in the early spring, dies back during the summer and pops back up in the fall.
