Dent de Lion - Tooth of the Lion - this serrated leaf is indeed the same as the lawn flower although organically cultivated for tender leaves. This bitter green has great nutritional and medicinal value.
Preparation: To appreciate the full roar of dandelion greens’ sharp taste, rip them into bits and add to a salad. If you like it tempered, blanch in salted water for 5–10 minutes (check for desired tenderness), remove and dunk in cold water, and enjoy with olive oil, lemon, and salt. Or sauté blanched greens with garlic, onion, toasted pine nuts, and raisins.
Storage: For best flavor, prepare immediately or refrigerate in a plastic bag and use within 3–5 days—do not wash until ready to use.
