Bitter Greens Salad with Lemon & Honey

Recipe inspired by “Wyrd Sisters” by Terry Pratchett

“Granny’s implicit belief that everything should get out of her way extended to other witches, very tall trees and, on occasion, mountains.”

“Granny had also browbeaten the dwarfs who lived under the mountains and in fear of their lives into speeding the thing up. Many an egg had been laid in midair by unsuspecting fowls who had suddenly glimpsed Granny bearing down on them, scowling over the top of the broomstick.”

“Oh dear,” thought Magrat. “I hope she hasn’t happened to someone.”
