What’s for Dinner?

We’ve got yet another humble marker to the end of the root vegetable season…dandelion greens!  To some, dandelion is a pesky yard weed.  To others, a nutritionally packed delicacy.  They are delightfully bitter, enjoyed especially when paired with something rich (think cheese, bacon, etc.)  I’ll use them two ways this week – once on pizza!  And once as a salad with a warmed garlicky vinaigrette.  What sounds good to you?  Give something new a shot – you’ll be glad you did with spring produce like this!
