Wild Spring Flower Salad

What you need: 

1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup wood violet blossoms
2 cups wood violet leaves
1 cup young dandelion greens
1/3 cup sour grass (a clover like wood sorrel)
1/4 cup salad burnet leaves
4 cups lettuce
1/2 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup fresh or partially thawed frozen raspberries
raspberry or tangerine vinaigrette, to serve

What you do: 

1. Toast walnuts and cool.
2. Toss all ingredients and serve on a lovely bright spring day.
These flowers and greens appear in early spring where I'm from (Texas), but i think they are pretty common throughout the US. Take a nice walk in the woods and gather your delicate ingredients, then return home for a lovely, light refreshing salad.
