Steak Salad with Balsamic Blue Cheese Dressing and Mix Dandelion Greens

May 12, 2020



It's springtime, although there's four-season in a year and while summer, winter, fall have their fans but spring indeed the most delightful season there is. It is the season that marks the end of blistering winter and the transitional period of scorching summer. 


Spring refers to the season as well as to ideas of rebirth rejuvenation, renewal, and regrowth.


It is the time when we get an extra dose of the sunshine, and the weather starts to get warmer, it's incredible what a little sun can do for plants and grass. Flowers are in bloom, and my yard covered with beautiful yellow Dandelion, a pesky weed that has tremendous health benefits.
The truth is, Dandelion leaves are not widely used for consumption, but if you just give a chance, it actually tastes pleasant, a little bitter similar to arugula leaves. You can eat every part of Dandelion, roots, stems, and flowers. You can saute the greens or put in the salad, you can also incorporate in beverages such as tea or Dandelion juice for refreshment or for remedial purposes.































Here is one of my favorite delicious recipe:
