Early Spring brings Fresh Greens

Hey boys and girls... you don't need to go any further than your back door right now in Oklahoma, to find fresh greens.  I just picked henbit, dandelion, curly dock, and added them to mixed greens that wintered over in my garden ( kale, spinach, arugula, turnip )  I would suggest you add small amounts of these greens to some you already love, both in salads and cooked, or even in your green smoothies, if you are not used to them.  All are highly nutritious.  Mom always used to make a spring dandelion salad starting out with the healthy dandelion and then adding a less healthy, but totally tasty hot salad dressing made with bacon grease, vinegar and sugar.  yum.
