One basket for that we'll be eating raw and the other one for herbs that will be cooked...I like to come home with my herbs cleaned & arranged ,ready to use .
When we came back we had an amazing wild rocket ( not be confounded with arugula ) and Dandelion salad with fresh eggs from the farm nearby : this is one of my favorites , a real luxe to me. The combination between the bitterness of dandelion and the spicy taste of wild rocket is so good that you don't need to add anythyng else , just a normal seasoning.Accompanied with eggs is an healthy and light lunch or dinner . Your liver will thank you !
Dandelion & Wild Rocket Salad
Wash the herbs almost three times , till the water is clear , then put them in a bowl. Prepare a vinaigrette : in a cup put some fleur de sel ( how much as you like ) a drizzle of apple's winegar t dissolve the salt , extra-virgin olive oil and freshly grounded black pepper , mix well and add to the salad . Cook the eggs : raise the water to boil , put gently the eggs inside and let cook for five minutes , drain and cool with cold water . Serve with the salad and enjoy !
