Dandelion Pesto

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"Yes, the notorious dandelion, or taraxacum officinale has long been a nutritious supplement to salads, stir-frys, soups, condiments, and medicinally. Dent-de-Lion or Teeth of the Lion as the French say, is a plant worthy of respect being off the charts in vitamins A,B,C,D, potassium and other minerals.

NOTE: Only harvest from organic gardens or untreated lawns."
