River Berry Farm Organic Dandelion Greens
These delectable greens are known as one of the most mineral rich foods available in early summer. Lightly sauteed with a splash of balsamic vinegar helps to balance the bitter flavor of these greens. It is aptly named in French; dent de lion, or tooth of the lion, for its characteristic jagged leaf edges resembling a lions tooth.
Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
Dandelion greens are one of the first greens to appear in the spring, and are a welcome sight at the table. Harvested as young leaves before the plant sets to flower catch these greens before they take on a strong bitter flavor. Our cooler climate here in Vermont allows us to grow delectable dandelions through early summer and still reap tender greens. Certified Organic
