Steak Salad with Balsamic Blue Cheese Dressing and Mix Dandelion Greens

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 and ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, and regrowth.

It is when we get an extra dose of 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 is 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 give a chance, it 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 them in the salad. You can also incorporate in beverages such as tea or Dandelion juice for refreshment or remedial purposes.
