Dandelion Leaf Salad
4 oz Bacon slices, cut crosswise into 1/4 inch strips
1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup Shallot, finely chopped
3 tablespoon White wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Black pepper, freshly ground
4 oz dandelion leaves


This salad is traditionally served on the first of May, when young dandelion leaves are ready for picking. Recipe may be halved.
Note: Yellow onion may be substituted for the shallot.
1. Put dandelion leaves into a large salad bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp, 8 to 9 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towel. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. fat from skillet.
3. Add olive oil to skillet, then shallot or onion. Cook for 1 minute, then add vinegar, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Remove dressing from heat, pour over dandelion leaves, and toss to coat. Crumble reserved bacon, scatter over greens, and toss again. Serve immediately.
