Wilted Dandelion Greens Salad Recipe

4 slices of bacon, chopped
1 small red onion, diced
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 bunch dandelion greens, washed and dried, stems removed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Fry bacon bits in a skillet until they are crisp and have rendered all their fat. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings and return the skillet to the burner. Add onion and stir in the sugar and cider vinegar. Pour the hot dressing over the greens, tossing the dandelion greens so as to coat them with dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Note: To make this recipe vegetarian, omit the bacon and prepare the dressing with oil.
