Dandelion Green Salad


1 lg bunch dandelion greens, torn
1/2 tsp coarse ground sea salt
1/4 tsp coarse ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lemon, squeezed, seeds removed
1/4 cup Good Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
optional - 1/2 tsp Midwestern Garden Radish, instead of salt and pepper


In a large bowl, toss all ingredients together.
Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour in a cool but not refrigerated spot.


This is something my Grandma made every summer. I came back to it not so long after, when I was looking for Passover recipes. Dandelions are regularly part of a Seder, often being prepared in the same fashion as my grandmothers Sunday salad. It seems what some would call a weed, has brought flavor to feasts the world over.
