"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. Below is a hearty pesto that will be the talk of the dinner party. So if you are feeling adventurous give it a try, you will not be disappointed. NOTE: Only harvest from organic gardens or untreated lawns."

I just made this a few minutes ago, and I'm giving it a 4* review with the idea that I'll come back and rate it later after it has rested for a couple of days. For the measurement, I rough chopp...

You must know that you like dandelion before eating it raw. This recipe Is legit, and bitter

It was way too bitter. I saw someone online cuts dandelion with honey so I tried that but it's still way too bitter. I was thinking of using it on pasta as a pesto.
