How to make a wild spring salad

There are lots of wild spring leaves around at the moment and although many people regard some of them as weeds, some can be used to make wild salads.

In this video I use dock, dandelion, cow parsley, raspberry, blackberry and hawthorn leaves we found growing wild. I added sorrell and angelica grown on the allotment.

Dressing was made from white wine vinegar, olive oil and homemade hawberry ketchup. Fillings for the hard boiled eggs are the yolkes mixed with chopped wild garlic leaves.

I also added pink fir apple potatoes. These are great for salads. I topped them with a little bit of chopped fried bacon.
