민들레 무침
Mindeulle muchim is a somewhat spicy/sweet/sour salad like dish that is made from dandelion leaves and/or flower stems.
Dandelions have long been used in Korean cuisine. The leaves and stems are used in soups or wild namul dishes, and with the root as a tea like beverage. They are high in vitamins A, C, E, and K and have been used medicinally to treat infection, liver problems, and as a diuretic.
In early spring dandelion greens can be purchased at some larger Korean markets, some farmers markets, or simply foraged. If you gather your own dandelions, be sure to avoid areas where pesticides, weed killers, or other chemicals have been used.
