If you can't beat them... eat them

Imagine, if you will, a vegetable that is so prolific it grows almost anywhere, seeds itself, doesn't need watering. OMFG you say, where can I get this wonderful plant?


Your back yard, streetsides, parks, Fields. I am talking about dandelions!

Dandelions get a bad rap, and yahoo green agrees. My top pick on my foraging list, from dandelion fritters to salad and soup, dandelions even make wine! So obnoxious weed or super food? I am inclined to the latter, but you decide!

I'm on the "latter" side also. Dandelion salad, this time of year, is my absolute favorite (right before they flower!).
