    They must taste fine cuz I didnt taste anything funny in my tuna salad. But I didnt taste them specifically. I heard they have a bitter taste, but I didnt taste it.

    I like dandelion greens, but I prefer collard greens or kale.

    PAJohn saidDid you buy them at the grocery or did you pull them out of your own lawn? Too early for dandelions here in Pennsylvania. How did they taste?

    Store bought. They are very long and crisp, not like the ones in the yard. They are supposed to have a bitter taste, but I didnt taste it in my tuna salad...along with the carrot, onion, broccoli, celery, canoleo mayo, and tuna on toasted whole wheat bread.

    I wonder if there is a variety I could grow in my garden. Imagine cultivating dandelions...the neighbors would shit bricks!

    So, the French call dandelion greens Ipiss en lit which means, "pee in bed". I don't know why the name, but do let us know what happens tonight!

    Yep. One way to see them is to garb & drag them onto the desktop (at least with a Mac), and then open the files from there with an image viewer. I just checked, and there appears to be 2 jpg files there.

    As for dandelion greens, that was quite hippie in the 1960s. I still haven't eaten any, but what the hell, maybe I should try. My partner grows all kind of herbs and vegetables, and he just stares when I go outside and snatch handfuls of his parsley and other stuff, and eat it raw. I suppose one green leaf is about the same as another.

    That's funny cuz dandelion is French for lion's teeth.
