  • Calories per serving: 56

Like other leafy greens, peppery dandelion and watercress leaves are excellent sources of calcium and vitamins A and C; they’re also favorites for detox and anticancer diets. The spicy ginger vinaigrette sweetly balances the greens’ tangy edge.

  1. Toss dandelion, watercress, carrot, onion, cucumber, and cilantro in a large salad bowl.
  2. Whisk all dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle over salad and toss gently.
