Today I foraged some dandelions from a wild spot near my garden. I then harvested some other bits, which had been intentionally grown, and made a salad. For those interested, the other ingredients were: sorrel, borage flowers (also wild), rose petals, sage flowers, lettuce leaves, Hablitzia tamnoides and parsley.

I tossed the salad with a homemade dressing and served it with some sliced tomatoes and mozzarella. Simple but healthy and very tasty. The dandelions were not as bitter as I feared - I usually avoid them whilst foraging as I've eaten some that were shockingly bitter.

Ingredients:
- One cup of dandelion leaves
- One cup of lettuce leaves
- Edible flowers (borage, sage, dandelion)
- Parsley sprigs

For the dressing:

- Olive oil
- Balsamic vinegar
- Honey

Method:

1. Wash and dry the ingredients. Cut the dandelion and lettuce leaves into small strips.

2. Toss the ingredients together in a bowl.

3. Mix a little olive oil, balsamic and honey together in a jar to make the dressing. I used a mostly-empty honey jar and omitted that ingredient.
