Carrot Tops?

Anyone use the green carrot tops in any recipes? Can you cook them? Are they good in a salad?

I put organic carrot tops in salad with no ill effects, but perhaps you should try them in small doses first.

They're potentially toxic. Certain people react to the alkaloid they contain. They are not very tasty, either. They can be used - I've used them in greens gumbo. There are several recipes on the site that incorporate them, too.
