Every part of the dandelion is edible, including its roots, leaves and blossoms. Young leaves are excellent in a tossed salad or cooked as greens. Dried leaves can be used for tea and roasted roots make a wonderful, healthful coffee substitute. Just be sure to harvest dandelions from a chemical free patch of land or you can purchase dandelion products (and get valuable advice) from your local health food store.
