Creamy Dandelion Greens Dressing
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves roughly 2 cups
As we all know dandelion greens grow like weeds all over our yards and even through the cracks in concrete, however, did you know they are also one of the most nutrient dense and medicinal greens to ingest? They offer wonderful support for the liver, helping to aid in gentle daily detoxification. They're also a great source of Vitamin A, calcium, and even iron. However, they are bitter. Very bitter. How does one make these super-greens more palatable for the taste buds? By mixing them with cold pressed fats such as olive oil and raw nuts and seeds, high quality salt, and a touch of lemon for that perfect flavor balance.
