Hunger Games Dandelion Salad with Blood Orange Salad Dressing

Superfood dandelion greens deserve a tangy salad dressing made from blood oranges, olive oil and red chili pepper. Bright, tart, sweet and spicy all at the same time.
Servings: 4


  • Dandelion greens
  • Dressing
  • 1 teaspoon of citrus zest from a combination of blood orange and lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of raspberry honey or regular honey
  • 1 teaspoon of fig jam optional
  • 1/8 teaspoons red chili pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon blood orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil or canola oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Zest the citrus into a small bowl
  • Whisk together dijon mustard, honey, fig jam and red wine vinegar and citrus juices.
  • Slowly whisk in olive oil and grapeseed oil.
  • Season with salt the pepper and taste for heat. Dressing should have a spicy zing to it, which helps to balance the bitterness of the greens.


This dressing makes enough for 1 bunch of dandelion greens.
