Dandelion Greens

Dandelions greens in the market means that spring is here. They are delicious and very nutritious. They have a slightly bitter note, but are deliciously elegant in a salad and make a tasty braised vegetable. Dandelion greens are best when they are young and have just emerged. The longer they mature, the more bitter they get. The leaves are the most frequently eaten section of the plant, but the flowers and roots may also be eaten. You can often find dandelion greens in health food stores and specialty markets, but I recall harvesting them with my grandmother in the wild.
