This is my great grandmother's recipe. My family enjoys it every Spring.
Salad for 4-6 people
Gather a brown paper grocery bag half full of dandelions. Cut the dandelions plant just below the root. Rinse well with plenty of water.
2 cups of water
1/2 cup of cider vinegar
3/4 pound salt pork , chop finely
7 hard boiled eggs
Pick over, wash, and chop dandelions. Fry salt pork until crisp. Set aside fat.
Boil water, vinegar, and about 1/3 of the fat.
Mix boiling liquid with dandelions, stir well and put a tightly fitting lid on so salad will wilt.
Add sliced hard boiled eggs and salt pork.
I know that you enjoy this salad as much as my family does!
