I went to a new (yippee) local farmers market on the weekend and grabbed a beautiful bunch of fresh organic dandelion. This herb is so fantastic for your health — it supports digestion, kidney health and liver health. While it’s quite bitter to taste, that’s also why it has so many special benefits. Anything bitter supports the production of digestive enzymes and bile production which can reduce bloating and discomfort. The bitter properties improve the nutrient absorption of the meal.
This salad is very simple and will work with many other fruit and vegetable additions! I used a fig balsamic to sweeten it a little and to balance out the bitterness, but feel free to use any variation of balsamic vinegar in your dressing. ENJOY!
1. Wash all produce and prepare ingredients.
2. Add all the salad ingredients into a bowl.
3. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl then add over salad. Dress as you like (you may want more or less dressing) and toss well to coat salad evenly.
