Dandelions act as a natural detoxifier and diuretic, triggering the kidneys to flush out excess salt and fluids and help the liver release toxins. This zesty spring or early summertime salad is from the Pennsylvania Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
