Our dandelion greens are a cultivated variety called Catalogna Special. These are more-mild and less bitter than the wild, naturally grown dandelion that you see around your yard.
Just like the wild dandelion, this cultivated variety can be eaten raw in salads or sautéed like other greens.
They are an excellent source of vitamins A & K, calcium, and iron. Interesting fact: the name dandelion means "lion's tooth" because of the jagged-edge appearance of the leaves.
Chop or finely mince the leaves to use fresh a a "bitter" in you salad or use for cooking.
Store in plastic bag in refrigerator.
