I was just out in the yard. I picked a handful of dandelion greens--my first time.
After washing and draining them. I tasted some.....I thought, wow this is nice, not bitter at all. THEN all of a sudden, some bitter came through. It's not like spinach at all, more like tonic water (which I like) bitter. But you know, it wasn't really bad, it only lasted a moment. I will be trying some in a salad now this next week.

That's great. I'm sure you'll find them rather good with hard cooked eggs, sweet onion and a good evoo and red wine vinegar. Thanks again
