If You Can't Beat Them, Eat Them!

Another good title would have been "When Life Gives You Dandelions, Make Salad."
I'm sure that you have at least three dandelions in your yard at this very moment. (Unless you have chickens, goats, or ducks. They love to eat these greens!) But, perhaps you were unaware that these little nuisances were edible greenery, suitable for a salad. It's true! During the depression many a family dined on dandelion salad! Clara, of Great Depression Cooking with Clara has a wonderful video on harvesting, washing, and dressing a dandelion salad. She says it takes patience and time, but the results will be worth it. So, the next time you think about spraying weed killer on your dandelions, eat them instead! Click here to watch the video of Clara making dandelion salad.
