Dandelion Greens Fig Salad – Delicious!
Today I am going to show you how to make a simple dandelion green fig salad. Dandelion greens are a nutritional powerhouse, they contain: dietary fiber, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), Riboflavin, vitamin C, vitamin A,
vitamin K, iron and calcium.
Dandelion greens can be a bit bitter, so make sure to prepare them with something sweet like fruit. In today’s fig salad recipe I combine currants and fresh figs to mellow out the dandelion green’s bitterness. Hope you like it!

4-5 fresh figs sliced into rounds
Dash of pink or sea salt

Add all the salad ingredients into a bowl and toss. Whisk all salad dresing ingredients in a small bowl and then pour over the salad. Toss again and then serve. Serves 1.
