This simple salad can be added to lunch or dinner. Try it with baked sardines for extra omega nutrition!

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups dandelion leaves, chopped

Dressing:

  • 1 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp pink or gray sea salt
  • ½ tsp honey or coconut nectar
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Optional boosters:

  • 3 freshly baked sardines (use BPA-free canned if necessary)
  • Swap 1 tablespoon of the olive oil for omega-3 oil
