Dandelion is a perennial bitter green which belongs to the Asteraceae family. This classic spring green is so much more than a weed! Larger leaves are delicious sauteed, stir-fried or lightly wilted while tender young leaves make a sensational spring salad.

Dandelion greens provide calcium and iron amongst other phytonutrients. One cup of chopped dandelion greens has 10% of the recommended daily value for calcium, which is even higher than that found in kale. Dandelion greens also rank highly for iron content with 1.7 milligrams of iron in one cup. This iron is more easily absorbed from dandelion greens given that they also contain a good amount of vitamin C.

Dandelion greens are known to cleanse the liver and gallbladder and support healthy kidney function. They have been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels as well as support healthy cholesterol levels. For these reasons, dandelion has long been touted as a cleansing green and rejuvenating spring tonic.

Pistachios add protein and satisfying healthy fats to this salad, with 6 grams of protein per 1 ounce, which is one of the highest amongst nuts. They are also a nice source of many minerals including phosphorous and vitamins like thiamin.

Mulberries are one of my favorite fruits and a lovely way to add a natural sweetness to this salad. The fiber in mulberries is great for healthy digestion. These fruits also provide iron and resveratrol, an important antioxidant flavonoid to support heart health.

Finishing off this light salad with a citrus dressing balances out the bitter bite of the dandelion with a tart, fresh flavor. This homemade vinaigrette is easy to make and adds a bright, naturally sweet touch to any salad.

If you are lucky enough to have a natural, untreated lawn or live near a safe foraging area, wild dandelions are easy to find. Pick them before they begin to flower for the most tender leaves. Be sure they have not been treated with weed killer, herbicides or other toxic chemicals.

You can also find both cultivated and wild varieties of dandelion at your local farmer’s market or supermarket.
