Dandelion Greens and Wild Rice Salad

Pin It

Spring is a time for cleansing. It’s also a great time to get in touch with your senses. Dandelion greens not only have strong cleansing properties, but they also have a unique bitter taste, which can be enjoyed naturally, without a lot of sauces or condiments.

Allowing your tastebuds to become tuned in to the subtle flavours of natural foods is one of the best ways to make eating vegetables more enjoyable and less of a chore.

This salad is very simple, yet robust in flavour and nutrients.

Ingredients for one solo salad:

1/2 cup of wild rice, cooked. (Soaking beforehand makes a BIG difference in the cooked product. It becomes much softer and more open.)

1 cup of torn dandelion greens (You can pick them yourself, or find them at the supermarket.)

1/8 cup of soaked walnuts, crushed

1/2 avocado, cubed

1 tsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp olive oil

Squeeze of fresh lemon

Salt and pepper to taste


Easy-peasy. Combine all ingredients, top with olive oil and lemon and enjoy in the sunshine. Unless you’re foraging your own greens, then this recipe becomes a little more complicated. 😉
