Weed or gourmet treat? I’ve seen dandelion greens in the produce section of grocery stores. I’ve even seen packets of dandelion seeds for sale in garden stores.
Why bother when you can let Mother Nature do the work?
My yard is full of them. I just dig them up with a trowel. They add a nice tang to a salad of mixed greens and grated carrot.
The other day, I sautéed some of the greens with garlic and onion. They came out a bit too bitter for my taste. Next time I’ll try mixing them with potatoes or rice.
The roots are edible, too, though I haven’t tried doing anything with them yet. That’s on my to-do list.
