Dandelion Greens with Hot Olive Oil Dressing


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds (1 ounce)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons Sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound tender young dandelion greens, any tough stems discarded


dish: side
season: anytime

Heat oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook garlic and almonds, stirring frequently, until pale golden, about 2 minutes. Add raisins and cook, stirring, until garlic is golden and raisins are plumped, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper, stirring until combined. Pour hot dressing over dandelion greens in a bowl, tossing with tongs to coat.
