Red Dandelion Greens look really cool, don’t they? They have bright hot pink, almost red, stems with bright green leaves. I throw them into salads for extra color, but they are a bit tougher than your standard greens, so I like to mix them in with some tender leaves. They are a little bitter but not quite as strong as endive.

For lunch, I piled together some red dandelion greens with red romaine, some yellow cherry tomatoes and red heirloom tomatoes, some roasted peppers, and a shower of Pecorino Fresco. I drizzled some of my favorite balsamic and a very fruity olive oil. It was a simple piece of heaven.
