A few young and tender leaves of dandelion
A few leaves of rocket
One sliced pear
Handful of walnuts
Dress with lemon juice and olive oil
Best to pick this in a field but we found our leaves by the edge of strawberry plants. It is a lovely feeling to think that we are competing with rabbits for that salad! The bitter edge of the dandelion is nicely rounded by the pear and nuts.
I love the fact that the most delicious things in life are free: dandelion salad, sunshine on a beach or a run in the woods when the heat has just gone down and the cicadas start again…
