This dish came about after finding a field of dandelion greens in one of our forests. After a quick check to verify that foraging was ok in the forest we were in, the picking began in earnest. It is just so deeply satisfying to nourish yourself straight from nature.
I always love potatoes so any way I can add something new I am on board. Using tri color potatoes just adds a little extra. As they say, you always eat first with your eyes. This dish makes you want to dive right in.
