    The dressing did not turn out as creamy as I would have liked, but you might try adding more almonds. The sweetness of the almonds and honey balances nicely with the slightly bitter greens and the salty/tangy cheese. It's a winner!

    Hmmm....will try this one too....didn't know about the lecithin in dandelions, but know traditional herbalists recommend them for the bitter properties that stimulate the liver and bile production which benefits digestion and the liver.

    Almonds are high in calcium and great for diabetics to snack on for a protein boost.

    I feel like spreading knowledge today!

    Sure Rubes, as long as you don't use weed killers or artificial fertilizers. Do your liver a favour.
