Tuesdays At The Table - Dandelion Greens Salad

The weather is getting warmer, and produce is getting just a bit more economical to buy at the store.  However, if you're a little adventurous you can get your dandelion greens directly from your yard!  Meadow sucks down dandelion greens like they're going out of style.  Of course, that means I need to spend money to buy these yummy bitter greens in the store.  *sigh* {Note: Please buy them from a store if you have a dog or put any type of chemicals on your grass.}

  4. That looks great! I've never tried dandelion greens before. It seems crazy that a farm would actually grow them on purpose!

  6. I've never done Dandelion Greens before. Goodness knows we have enough in our yard! Luckily (for aesthetic reasons)they haven't sprouted the green part yet.

  7. Considering my yard is full of dandelions, this is very useful to me! Thank you for hosting. I brought a fruit salad drizzled with lemon & thyme syrup this week.

  8. I've never tried dandelions before... have you tried clovers? I used to chew on them while playing as a kid. They're bitter too, and I wonder if they're related to dandelions? Thanks for hosting!

  10. Hi Cole. Your dandelion salad sounds wonderful. Our yard is over come with dandelions, though I think I would rather get them from the store. Never tried them, but now you've peaked my interest to try them. Thanks for the party and have a great upcoming week-end.
