Imagine my surprise when I came across some wild Lettuces in the garden!
To be honest, I didn’t even know Lettuces grow in the wild! :O
One fact I know though, is the use of Dandelion leaves in Dandelion salad. Apparently it is delicious! (^-^)
Here is a recipe I found on allrecipes.com.
Recipe Yield 4 servings
- 1/2 pound torn dandelion greens
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- salt and pepper to taste
- In a medium bowl, toss together dandelion greens, red onion, and tomatoes. Season with basil, salt, and pepper.
Not recommended for anyone who owns a dog!! :O
