"My Grandmother used to pick dandelion greens from her yard and cook them. They were great and this recipe looks like something I would enjoy, also. I never paid any attention, as a child, when to pick them, though. Could someone please let me know?"

"I made this salad plate to demonstrate at a woman's meeting that hosted a guest speaker that talked about pioneer kitchens. Dandelions were used by early pioneers in the west. Most were surprised that the greens were not bitter at all (which was a surprise for those who had never tasted the greens.) I tried to duplicate the picture as close as possible and it was a beautiful plate! I used tangarine slices a my fruit of choice."
