I love Spring especially when the it is dandelion time! My husband gathers the tender dandelion leaves each spring to add to our salads. This year I decided to add it to this simple salad and it was absolutely wonderful.

How To Make dana's light spring salad - yum!

  • 1
    Wash the veggies, set aside. I used a veggie peeler to shave my zucchini and carrot. Place in a medium size shallow bowl. Slice the red onion very thin and add to the bowl, chop the dandelion leaves (make sure you gather leaves that do not have any buds on them or they will be bitter), add to the bowl. Add the cherry tomatoes, and cheese, drizzle Italian dressing but not heavy, salt & pepper to taste. Toss and Serve.
