  • Ciagottia Salad (Dandelion Salad)
    Recipe contributed by James Gilardi
    • 1 1/2 pounds ciagottia (dandelions)
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon oregano
    • 1/4 cup vinegar
    • Salt & black pepper to taste
    • 2 cloves fresh garlic minced
    First go to your back yard or a park close to your house when spring begins. Pick approximately 1 and 1/2 pounds of dandelions. This needs to be picked while they are still small and before they flower. Use a knife at the root of the flower and cut off the root. Wash the dandelions real good and place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well. This dish was brought back from Sicily, many years ago. If you do not want to pick your own dandelions there are a select italian fruit markets that carry them. Makes 6 servings.
