Spring delicacy

A couple of days ago, I harvested our first dandelion salad of the season. This is a lot of work that adds up to a wonderful delicacy.

You can accompany it with hard-boiled eggs, bacon, sardines, smoked salmon, avocado or whatever you want to experiment with. It reminds me of my youth, growing up in the French Alps. My mom love to gather dandelions and prepare them in delicious salads.

Sometime in March the first dandelions would appear and as we followed higher elevation snow-melt, you could enjoy them through May. Same thing in Park City, albeit a bit later.

Just be careful of not catching some tapeworm infection ; clean you dandelions thoroughly!
