There is nothing bashful about this salad...it's full of assertive flavors, hence the title. If you don't like/can't find organic dandelion greens, you can substitute your favorite greens (dandelion greens are incredibly nutritious, though, so do give them a try, if possible). —WinnieAb

I grew up in a restaurant family (my parents owned the now closed Quilted Giraffe in NYC) and I've always loved to cook.
My interest in the connection between food and health led me to pursue a graduate degree in naturopathic medicine. I don't practice medicine anymore; I have a blog called Healthy Green Kitchen that I started in May of 2009 and I wrote a book called One Simple Change that will be published in January, 2014.
I live in upstate New York with my family and many pets.
