Early Spring Salad

Fresh and tender sprouts begin to spring from the ground, leaving the boring browns and whites of winter behind.  I love springtime, and this salad catches the essence of the season perfectly.

2 cups spring greens (try arugula, mustard greens, mesclun, etc.)
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 large handful (about 1 cup) dandelion leaves
2 green onions, chopped
6 small radishes, thinly sliced
1 cup sprouts, any variety (bean, alfalfa, broccoli, sunflower seed or sprouted peas)

Toss all ingredients in a large serving bowl.  Serve with your favorite dressing or try my Dressing, For One.
