    Wild Salad (one variation)

    4 cups chickweed greens
    3 cups black locust blossoms
    1/2 cup sorrel leaves and flowers
    1/2 cup wild strawberries
    1/2 cup indian cucumber roots
    1/2 cup pineapple weed flowers
    1/4 cup butternuts
    clover blossoms to garnish

    Pretty self explanatory, wash and mix all ingredients.

    This was an outstanding salad. The chickweed is a mild green and serves as an excellent base, the Black Locust blossoms are delicious with a vanilla-like flavor, the Sorrel adds a nice sourness to the dish, the strawberries add a nice sweetness and color, the pineapple weed adds a citrus element, the Cucumber Roots and Butternuts add nice flavor and texture. I have not yet come up with a wild dressing (am working on getting a hand crank oil press) but I would think a wild cider vinegar and butternut or hazelnut oil would pair nicely with this. I opted to use a strawberry balsamic with this and although it was not wild, it was amazing!!

    Enjoy!

    And because of YOU, in about 20 minutes I'll be munching on a mixed field greens salad with grilled chicken and raspberry vinaigrette dressing.
