Radicchio and dandelion greens are a few of my favorite greens and these chicories have been coming out of the garden the past few weeks. Red and white-streaked radicchio and the dark green and red of dandelion greens are beautiful in a salad… they are also super-good for you!
Chiffonade your greens (slice into thin ribbons). Mix lime juice, sesame oil, and tamari (or use salt) with chopped cilantro. You could also add a bit of honey if you want a sweeter dressing to pair with these bitter greens. Toss everything together with cooked soba noodles.
Top with jalapeno slices for a little heat. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if you like.
You could substitute Napa cabbage, escarole, or endive for the greens.

Yum! Thanks for the inspiration, I’ll be making this for dinner tonight!
It is extra good if you have a little basil to throw in there too! Enjoy!
