Salads from wild plants, salad recipes from primrose and carrot, dandelion, nettle, watercress, sorrel, borage, radish with wild garlic.
You need to wash wild plants for salads very carefully so that sand does not get into the salad. This is especially important for the first greenery, because it all has leaves that are tightly adjacent to the soil, and therefore very polluted. In order to rinse greens well for salads, you need to place the plants in a bowl with water, while the sand remains at the bottom of the bowl, and do not drain the water, but take out the plants from there, leaving the sand at the bottom.
Another important detail in the preparation of such salads – as finely chopped as possible. Most wild plants are relatively tough and finely chopped makes them more tasty. The more different wild plants you mix, the tastier the salad will be. Pour the chopped herbs with any dressing of your choice – oil, sour cream, mayonnaise or some other sauce.
In the classic kitchen, fresh greens are prepared without salt. If you salt it in advance, then the greens start up the juice, become flabby, and the salad is liquid and tasteless. Therefore, it is better to salt the salad right on the plate, according to your own taste.
If the salad is obtained only from a small number of plants, it can be decorated with the addition of boiled eggs, grated cheese, finely chopped boiled or fried chicken. Finally, croutons – slices of bread toasted with garlic in oil.
