Alfalfa and Clover Salad Recipe
Alfalfa flour can be sprinkled into soup or it can be eaten
raw. Many purists nibble the plant from hand right out in
the fields or after dipping it in salt water. Alfalfa also
combines well with other greens and it can be used with
clover to make a very appetizing salad.
Pick and chop one cup of alfalfa and one cup white or fed
clover. Find some sorrel or grape leaves if you can and
chop and toss in enough of either or both to give the salad
a tang. Now toss and add — a teaspoonful at a time
— bacon grease or other dressing to give your salad
the flavor you like.
