Clover and Dandelion Salad

 

Prep time:                   10 minutes

Cooking time:         0 minutes

Yields:                              2 people

 

Ingredients: 

1 cup clover
4 dandelion flowers
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
3 tbsp violets
drizzle with olive oil

 

Directions: 

Pluck the clover off the more fiberous stems and place in a bowl. Here's the fun part- rip the petals from the dandelions (just as you did as a child) and toss in the bowl. Add the remaining ingredients toss and serve.

Notes: 

Caution: When foraging food always be sure you positively identify each plant species. Be certain that you don't eat foraged food that had been sprayed with any pesticides or herbacides. If you need assistance many state parks will have someone who can help you.
