 Recently, I found there are some yellow flowers in the park near by my home. Oh, they are dandelions! It reminded me of “Tanpopo (Dandelion) Omuraisu” in Japan as well as “Springtime A La Carte” by O. Henry.

 After re-reading the short, colorful, tasty, and aromatic story, I learned that dandelion is edible~

 She is a true soldier of fortune, this dent-de-lion—this lion's tooth, as the French chefs call her.

 Dandelion has been used in herbal medicine to treat infections, as well as bile and liver problems in Taiwan and China.

 According to folklore. if you can blow off all seeds of a dandelion globe with one blow, you are loved for sure. If some remain, you are loved with reservations. If lots of seeds still remain, sorry, you are not loved at all.

 In fact, I would not collect dandelion from parks, where are kinds of dogs’ toilets, but grow some in my balcony. After one month about, it's time to harvest.

 This is my dandelion potato salad, tastes like a springtime fanfare♪

By the way, I just purchased two Now Foods Dandelion Root from iHerb (coupon code: ZRW435). One costs USD 5.08 only, and is good for your body, especially in spring.
