Dandelion Greens Salad


One of the vendors at the Farmer's Market just started getting dandelion greens a couple of weeks ago, and I will say I was happy to see them! When I walked over to get them yesterday she asked me "are you ready for these?" and so - fair warning - they are an intense green. Strong and bitter, but I think balanced with some sweet and salt and richness they are absolutely delicious. - aargersi

What you will need

1 big bunch of dandelion greens, about 4 heaping cups when cleaned

1 large leek (or 2 small ones)

6 strips bacon (some of the bacon inevitably gets swiped during the cooking process)

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4 cup olive oil


4 eggs

A pot of salted water with a splash of white vinegar for poaching.
