Method

The pissenlit, or dandelion, rather despised in England, is a very useful winter salad, but it must be white and tender. When bought in a shop it is usually green and hard, as it has not been properly treated. Should there be some in a remote corner of the garden where it can grow unoffendingly, simply put a piece of tile or a flat stone over the plant, and it will soon be white and tender. Serve with plain French dressing.
