    Default Dandelion Salad

    Dandelions taste a little like endive. Here is a quick recipe for
    those "weeds".

    1/2 pound torn dandelion greens
    1/2 red onion, chopped (optional)
    2 tomatoes, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon dried basil
    salt and pepper to taste
    Directions: In a medium bowl, toss together dandelion greens, red

    onion, and tomatoes. Season with basil, salt, and pepper. You can
    also add a touch of vinegar.
