The Best, Most Healthy Greens In The World!

I am sharing my personal recipe for steamed dandelion greens served with a warm salad dressing. This is, hands down, the healthiest thing you can eat this spring. It is safe for everyone and makes a good spring tonic, body cleansing and liver cleansing. Do not eat this if you have gallstones or gallbladder problems, as they can be exacerbated by the diuretic/cleansing properties of the dandelions.

If you do not have access to fresh dandelions that are not exposed to exhaust fumes or pesticides, you can buy them in the produce section of Whole Foods and Plum Market grocery stores.

Boil about a quart of water and throw in as many dandelion greens that you can cram in the pot. Put a lid on and boil on high for 4 minutes.

Remove from heat and drain. Replace lid to keep dandelions hot. While the dandelions are sitting. Prepare hot salad dressing.

Hot Salad Dressing

1/4 cup butter, melted in 1 quart pot

Mix following ingredients together well and add, slowly to melted butter:
1 1/2 C water, cool to lukewarm
1 beaten large egg
1/4 cider vinegar
3 T flour
1/2 t sea salt
1/4 sugar

Stir all together over medium low heat until thick.

Pour over greens and enjoy!
I usually place a sliced hard boiled egg or a poached between the greens and the sauce, for a complete meal. You can add whatever you peppers, cheese, whatever. Enjoy!
