Do you know that a common weed that grows in your yard is actually edible? Dandelion can be used in a lot of homemade recipes that range from dressings to pesto. A really awesome tasting dandelion pesto can be made as a dip, a spread for sandwiches, or a sauce for pasta.
Pesto is typically made using a herb like basil, but any herb or similar plant can be used. If your yard is full of dandelions, then you have a main ingredient that is free. All you will need to do is gather a bunch for your dandelion pesto and wash them thoroughly. Make sure that you avoid areas that have been treated for weeds.
You are actually using the dandelion leaves when making a dandelion pesto. This is a great alternative to a store bought pesto and is easy to make as no exotic ingredients are used. All you need is some celery or chips to watch a full bowl disappear.
