Steak in the Grass (steak & dandelions)

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


One of my favorite submarine sandwiches to order is steak in the grass. I get a little upset when its made with spinach. Not that spinach and steak are not tastey, but the true italian way is with dandelions. Every year I go to the italian fest in town You bet thats the sandwich im going to get! Now being so easy to get at my local grocery store, I can have fun with these greens. If ya never tried, its a must.
