Decided to go simple with my first attempt at foraging - a salad with dandelion greens (as well as lettuce and cheese because my partner was not enthusiastic about having a salad with no lettuce at all). The dandelions are from an overgrown lot near where I live, and I got to hunt around through a bunch of plants I have yet to identify to find enough for dinner. I have no idea exactly how much I picked, but the bowl I used holds roughly 4 cups of water, so more than a cup!

The dish consisted of two slices of bread, topped with fried chanterelles, a fried egg and some chopped garden herbs (thyme and chinese chives), with perennial arugula on the side. The chanterelles were fried in butter, salt and pepper until golden and fragrant, then a dollop of sour cream and some heavy cream to make them more... saucey?
These are picked in the local forest, just a little hike away.
