    We love dandelion greens and salad, but this was inedible, as another reviewer pointed out. Most recipes using the raw greens call for some sort of sweeting agent. I tried the recipe again, adding honey, and it was greatly improved.
    This is a wonderful way to enjoy a salad. This leafy green packs a very nutricious punch... It is incredibly inexpensive and when it is tossed with olive oil and lemon or even better, red wine vinegar along with the upper part of spring onion and a bit of salt, it's like going to heaven. Try adding some cherry tomatoe and thinly sliced radish and fresh fennel and flat leaf parsley sometime. Loved it.
    This salad was simultaneously bitter and acidic, which normally would cancel out but somehow they seemed to boost each other's effect to create an inedible salad.
    I really haven't eaten this yet, but I may try in the future. I have to say that I never knew that dandelions were edible and good for you. And to think I just pulled a tons of them out of my yard the other day! Free food. Bummer. :) Thanks for the education.
