A Salad for the Picking


The rainfall of the past two days pushed all kinds of green growth out of the ground, including this lush, beautiful dandelion plant.  I found it growing in a protected spot between bushes on the south slope just above the big kite lawn.  Of course you don’t want that on your home lawn.  But Cesar Chavez Park offers a cornucopia of edible weeds, such as wild radish and wild mustard.  This fresh, leafy dandelion is just waiting to be part of your salad or stir-fry.  You can read more at treehugger.com or at Rodale’s Organic Life, among many other sources.
