Dandelion, Apple, Fennel Salad

Chat.n.Dish's picture
This is one of my favorite salads! The peppery goodness of the dandelion greens is perfect juxtaposed against the sweetness of the apples and fennel. Then mix in salty bacon and you have a flavor extravaganza that calls out to be served with warm flavorful couscous cakes!
