I made a Dandelion Greens salad. Ok, so I have to say if you haven't eaten these before, you will soon discover they are slightly bitter. But...when paired with cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese, you can't even tell at all. I will definitely be eating more of these super greens.
Handful of organic fresh dandelion greens (rinsed and torn)
DON'T PICK FROM WILD SOURCES (buy or grow organic), AS THE SOIL CAN BE CONTAMINATED WITH POLLUTANTS AND SEWAGE RUN OFFS
5 -6 cherry tomatoes
1 - 2 tsp of grated parmesan cheese
(oil salad dressing of your choice, but I ate it without any)
Toss all the above together and enjoy!
These greens provide a higher amount of calcium and iron than most cultivated greens and they have a wide array of health benefits that make them a super super food.
They are also loaded with antioxidants and an ultimate detox green that helps cleanse the liver. Loaded with minerals and even more protein per serving than spinach! They are especially abundant in Vitamin K (357% RDA) per cup.
The nutrients in dandelion greens may help reduce cancer risks, MS, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and stroke.
