Dandelion Salad.

Dandelion Greens Salad

There is a song Poke Salad Annie. It was popular in the 60’s. It was a real salad, created by slaves in the south. Unfortunately, they had to force for some of their food. Poke weed grew on the side of the road. It was quite a process to eat though. It had to be boiled several times to remove the toxins.

But today, we can grow our own greens and making a salad just involves a trip to the grocery store. This is my version of a “Poke” salad. It is really delicious!
