Dandelion pesto is a wonderful recipe made with spring greens right from your own yard!
(Note: Obviously, only forage dandelions from yards not sprayed with chemicals or pesticides.)
In the bowl of a food processor or blender, pulse together dandelion leaves, basil, garlic, and nuts. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the motor running, add olive oil and process until a smooth paste forms. Pulse in cheese if you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
