Dandelion: Dandelion Salad with Crispy Pecans & Crumbled Bacon


I have been eating Dandelion since I’ve been a little girl. And I have loved sweets since then too! If you are like me and you have a sweet tooth, managing your inclination to grab something sugary with bitter or astringent foods, like dandelion, is helpful.

Dandelion may look like a weed, but its nutritional composition really makes it shine as a medicinal remedy. It has been used for irritated skin, indigestion, blood pressure and immunity as well as balance disorders of the gallbladder, liver, and kidney.

1 cup boasts high levels of vitamin A, C, and K as well as essential electrolytes like potassium, calcium, and magnesium. It’s no wonder it’s one of my favorite beauty foods!

If eating dandelion is new for you, this salad will make you an easy convert. The bitter dandelion is balanced with the neutral butter or romaine lettuces while the mint adds a tone of freshness and sweetness. Pour on the flavanol-rich Dande Dressing below to add a luscious, creamy layer of flavor. Add any remaining dressing to “zoodles,” or as a topping over poached eggs. Enjoy!
