Warm Potato and Dandelion Green Salad

cindy sandberg


This was my grandmother's recipe. It is simple and delicious. My mother remembers that every spring, she and her three sisters would be sent out to collect dandelion greens. When they came home with a big bunch, Grandma would make this dish for the family's supper. It was always looked forward to with great anticipation! When I tried it for the first time, I could see why! It just tastes like simple, country goodness!
