Onion and Dandelion Salad Recipe
Description: You hear about eating dandelion leaves. But, how many
people actually have? It's very, very few. The inner leaves of dandelions
grown for consumption, are surprisingly not bitter. We dug deep, to find
this all but lost recipe.
Important Tip: Don't go out in your yard, to pick dandelions in your
lawn for a salad. They are bitter. The leaves of Dandelions grown for salads,
are loosely tied together, so the inner leaves blanch to a creamy yellow-white,
and are not bitter.
6 Tablespoons bacon grease
4 1/2 quarts dandelion leaves, washed and trimmed
