Forget spraying your lawn this year, go wild, let the dandelions grow and flourish. Then eat them! Don’t look down on dandelions as just a weed, the flowers are edible when the plant is still young.
Dandelion greens can be eaten raw, steamed, boiled, sauteed or braised.
For salads, greens should be plucked from new plants while still young and tender, before that first flower emerges. The larger greens are a little tougher so you might want to cook them.And yes….I’ve seen dandelion greens being sold in grocery stores…how about you?
