Dandelion Salad

Michael and I picked a big pail full of fresh, tender dandelion leaves today. We have tons of dandelions around the property so it didn't take long to fill our pail. We ate some of them in a simple salad tonight. They we're really quite good. There was a slight bitter taste but it didn't overpower the salad.

I steamed the rest of the dandelion leaves for the freezer. I'm sure I'll find a couple good recipes for steamed dandelion in the future.

We checked out the size of our cattail shoots but they aren't ready yet. I've done a quick search of the web and found many good cattail recipes. They even say you can pickle the cattails ... I'm certainly going to try that one out.
