Sorrel Salad Recipe
Pick Sorrel, sheep sorrel, sour grass or red sorrel (Rumex
Acetosella) for this recipe.
Sorrel combines well with other wild things and a good
salad can be made with one cup of sorrel leaves and a cup
of fresh dandelion crowns. The crown is the white part of
the dandelion between the green part of the leaf and the
root. Slice the crown into small pieces and soak out any
dirt. Crispen the sections in cold water if necessary. Now
add some leaves of the sweet clover (Melilotus
Officinalis), too. Not many, just enough to smooth the
flavor of the dandelion and sorrel. This salad can be eaten
without dressing or it can be tossed with a couple strips
of crisp fried bacon, grease and all.
