Horta (Sauteed Wild Garden Greens)
This classic dish is enjoyed throughout the Mediterranean. It generally consists of dandelion greens and other common wild garden greens.
Saute 1 large onion in olive oil until translucent and golden. Add 3-4 cloves of finely chopped garlic and saute for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add 2-3 cups of mixed wild greens (dandelion, purslane, amaranth, nettle and others) and steam until tender. Season simply with a little more olive oil, salt, and pepper and serve with feta. Delicious and Satisfying!
