Marinated Dandelion and Radish Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

I’m a big fan of dandelion greens. Especially, during the spring season or whenever I’m feeling the need for a detox/cleanse.

Fair advance warning… dandelion is bitter as heck!

It is an exceptional plant to improve the health of your liver and your heart.

You can read more about that here: How do you feel about this weed?

But, if you marinate those bitter greens, they become more palatable.

Try this Marinated Dandelion salad to see what I mean.
