Strip the leaves from stems and simmer the leafy parts in water with chopped up bacon and some white vinegar.

Here's a nice dandelion side dish that uses the greens as you would spinach

I chiffonade the leaves and do a quick saute with garlic and sometimes onions in olive oil. Be sure not to overcook them. They take almost no time at all.

Simplest is best in order to get the full flavor of the greens--bitter, yes, but deliciously so. In Italy, where wild foraged dandelions are a springtime treat, we steam them till tender (first stripping away, if necessary, any tough stems), then drain well, chop coarsely, and give them a brief saute in extra-virgin olive oil with a chopped clove of garlic, a sprinkle of chili flakes, and for those who like it (I do!) a minced anchovy fillet. A spritz of lemon juice and they're ready to eat. (And very good for you too.)
