Dandelion Greens with Toasted Garlic & Almonds
INGREDIENTS
1 large bunch dandelion greens or 1 head curly endive, escarole or chicory, trimmed and coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
4 scallions, thinly sliced, whites and about 2 inches of the greens only
1/3 cup sliced blanched almonds, toasted
1/4 teaspoon salt

PREPARATION
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop greens into the boiling water and cook until bright green, stirring once or twice, 30 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on the type of greens. Drain in a colander, then rinse well with cold water. Drain again, pressing on the greens to remove excess water.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and scallions; cook, stirring, until the garlic starts to turn golden brown, 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Add the greens and cook, stirring, until tender and heated through, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in almonds and season with salt. Serve immediately.
