Fresh Dandelion Salad

If you have managed to gather young, tender dandelion greens it's time to make a dandelion salad.  Wash and chop four cups of greens.  Add crumbled, fried bacon and chopped hard boiled eggs.

For the dressing:  Start with the bacon drippings, then mix in 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon flour or cornstarch.  Add one beaten egg, 1/4 cup vinegar and one cup water.  Cook until thickened.  Serve warm.

Pour the dressing over the salad just before serving.  Don't overdress.  It is easy to overwhelm tender greens with too much dressing.

God bless,
