In Response to Re: Here's something different WILTED DANDELION SALAD:
Gale G. Oops, I forgot, she use to make a wilted salad dressing & not only used the dandelions, she also used the dressing on spinach. I was too small to reach the stove to see how she did it, but I do remember the bacon grease, vinegar sugar & flour. I am going to try this recipe dressing to see if it is like the one she used on the spinach. In the winter, she heated beer & added egg (we use to joke "do you want egg in your beer", but the kids did not get any. Any chance you have a recipe for the hot beer & egg drink?

Hi Fran ,no I don't have a recipe for the beer and egg,but when ever we asked for something a little out of reach,mom would say what do you want egg in your beer? lol That brings back memories.My mom was married to another man before she married my dad and her in laws from the first marriage were Italian and they made the wilted dandelion salad,she made it a few times it's good.Some people actually raise dandilions.If I come across a recipe for the beer and egg I'll post it for you.I think that this dressing would be very good on spinach and very good for you as well.Spinach is very high in iron.
