When I was a young girl growing up in the farm country of Ohio, every spring my grandma would gather young dandelion greens and the following recipe is the sauce she always served with them. It is so good! When I got married I started making it and I serve it with fresh spinach or Swiss Chard. Hope you will try it and enjoy it as much as I do.
