As mentioned, I like my dandelions right off the plant, nothing fancy about nipping a leaf and stuffing it in my mouth. If I want to take a few extra minutes, I can grab a container of hummus out of the fridge and use it as a dip for the dandy leaves with strong midribs - a tasty combination. Or just spread the hummus on a leaf, roll it up, and pop it in!
Here are some links to a couple of my favorite herbal info sites. You will find some good dandelion recipes, some intriguing recipes, and some "you gotta be kidding" recipes.
To get you started, here is a simple, familiar-sounding recipe - it just uses dandelion instead of lettuce:
Warm Dandelion Greens Salad
Bet you never thought you'd be encouraging dandelions to grow, did you??
