Dandelion Greens Spring Salad With Watermelon Radish and Fig Balsamic Dressing

One of the first plants to pop up after winter has ended, it makes for great backyard foraging for this spring salad. Loaded with antioxidants and known for helping lower cholesterol, these greens have a slightly bitter taste similar to arugula. Balanced out by creamy goat chèvre and the perfectly subtle sweetness of California Olive Ranch Fig Balsamic Dressing, plus quintessential spring veggies like snap peas and radish, this salad is as on brand for Spring as you can get. Just be sure to pick your dandelion greens from a known, safe food foraging site, or grocery store or Farmer's Market.
