Sauteed Dandelion Greens

I got a bunch of dandelion greens in this week’s CSA box, so I decided to try them. One word: DON’T. They are very unpleasantly bitter. Thus says the girl who drinks coffee black and loves dark roasts only.

I used this recipe from Epicurious, cut in half. I added a bit of butter, thinking it would help the flavor, but no, it just got greasier. I also tried adding faux bacon bits…no dice. Even sriracha couldn’t save them. Gross.

I really hope I don’t get these in the CSA box again. If so, I may try one blogger’s tip and cook them with something sweet, like raisins or currants to counteract the bitter bite.

Verdict: NEVER make again. Possibly never use dandelion greens again as well.

(Side note: only good part of the meal: Field Roast Company’s faux apple sage sausage. These are pretty good.)

We used to mix these in with salad greens, but a little goes a long way, for sure.
