Miss Colemnn suggests that greens be cut with n sharp or scissors so less juice will lie lost. Shredded dandelion greens mixed with chopped onion, thinly sliced radishes, nnd parsley make a tempting Spring dish. Wild greens are cooked and served in the same way as mustard, kale, or turnip greens. Most housewives, the home demonstration worker explains, prefer to parboil the strong flavored ones. This requires onl v 2 or 3 minutes in plenty of water, after which the plants arc drained and cooked quickly in a small amount of lightly salted boiling water until tender, In the same manner that garden varieties are cooked. Just as quickly and easily prepared are panned greens, Miss Colcinan adds.
