As with other posters, this brought back memories of growing up on the Iowa farm. We actually thought the Wilted Dandelions were a delicacy. lol

Interesting subject.  Think I'll pass on the dandelion salad though.  I get sick every time I look out my window and see the neighbor's lawn(front and back) that is just a sea of yellow.  Trying really hard to keep those suckers from getting into my yard.  Since they never even try to get rid of theirs maybe I should give them the recipe lol.

My Grandmother made this salad for us when I was a child.  She made everything taste yummy.

I was just this afternoon talking with a friend about dandelion salad.  We both came to the conclusion that the greens have to be pretty young or else the salad can be bitter.

Nancy, I remember a song that mentions Poke Salad.. and that got me thinking about a song my Grandma would sing..Pickin up Paw-Paws put-n- 'em in my pocket, pickin up paw-paw's put-n-'em my pocket way down yonder in the paw-paw patch.   I have no idea where that came from but brings back memories.  Thanks for letting me hear my Grandma again, if only in my head.

Paw Paws?  Those are persimmons, aren't they?

And a "poke" was also a brown paper bag ..... You bought penny candy and put it in a poke. 
The kids that didn't have a metal lunch "bucket" carried their food in a poke.

The green leaves we ate as poke salad are very common weeds.  I see them 1000 times each summer and always thinkabout poke salad ...... dressing made from hot bacon grease, lots of sugar,  vinegar, salt and pepper. 
It was not thickened - just poured  piping hot over the greens.
