Not to Waste Calf Head

I don't and never cook(ed) calf head. Amazingly this recipe taught me not to waste calf head. I was reminded to be innovative in some ways. The taste is a little bit close with calf meat. Showered with some greens on top of it, the meal is sure to be very enjoyable and healthy. The vinaigrette brought the sour taste and the garnishing added flavor to the dish and made it a little presentable.
