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. I also stumbled across the little known fact that the second week in May is National Burger Week. I just couldn’t skip it; mid-week burgers, three ways, in celebration.
