Dandelion Salad with German Potato Salad


Hand Held Immersion Blenders


It is best to pick the dandelion greens early before they blossom. They will be the most tender and mild. I bought these dandelion greens, you can also substitute other dark greens for this salad.

Cut the stem off. Usually about 5 inches down.

Place the leaves in a bowl. The large leaves can be cut in two.
Keep the stems, you can use them to pickle or dip into hummus.

Chop the eggs for the dressing (Salatsosse) and add to a mixing bowl.

Whisk in the remaining ingredients to complete the dressing.

I made my own croutons. Dark rye bread fried in garlic oil. You can use store bought also.

Toss the salad and then top with the croutons and crisp bacon bits if you want. The tomato wedges give it the salad a little color
and nice flavor combination.


Dandelion Salad with potatoes
This dish is sort of a cross of a dandelion salad and hot German Potato Salad
It is an amazing combination that you can use with many types of salad or different greens.

The important thing is to let the potatoes cool down to warm before mixing them with the greens or you will cook them.
They are far better crunchy.

4 cups of potato cubes. I like to use a firm potato like Yukon Gold or red skin. Any potato will work.


Add some of the dressing for hot German potato salad.
Let it cook to mix flavors then turn the heat off and let cool
to warm.

Toss the slightly warm potatoes with the dandelion greens just before serving. This keeps the greens still crunchy.
