dandelion leaf

Dandelion gets its name from the French dent de lion, which means “lion’s tooth” and is a reference to the toothed edge of the leaf. Other characteristics, such as the bright yellow flower heads that turn to face the sun in summer that later become puff balls that scatter seeds in the wind, are responsible for various other nicknames for the plant, including clocks, priest's crown, blowball and puffball.

The bitter flavor of the leaf is enjoyed fresh as a salad green and dried as a tea, although the latter is also used to add earthy flavor to cooked foods. Dandelion leaf has a lot to offer in terms of nutrition, including several antioxidant compounds, vitamins A, B, C, D and K and the minerals calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and iron.
