Steak Salad with Balsamic Blue Cheese Dressing and Mix Dandelion Greens

It's springtime. Although there are four seasons in a year, while summer, winter, and fall have their fans, spring is the most delightful. The season marks the end of blistering winter and the transitional period of scorching summer.

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

It is when we get an extra dose of sunshine and the weather gets warmer. It's incredible what a little sun can do for plants and grass. Flowers are in bloom, and my yard is covered with beautiful yellow Dandelion, a pesky weed with tremendous health benefits. The truth is, Dandelion leaves are not widely used for consumption, but if you give them a chance, it tastes pleasant, a little bitter similar to arugula leaves. You can eat every part of the Dandelion, root, stem, and flower.

You can saute the greens or put them in the salad. You can also incorporate beverages such as tea or Dandelion juice for refreshment or remedial purposes.
