In a food processor, begin adding the greens, basil, garlic, lemon juice, and salt.
Turn food processor on and drizzle the olive oil through the top.
Continue to process until it reaches the consistency of a pesto.
You can adjust the thickness with more oil or even a drizzle of water can also help.
Dandelion greens are pretty bitter. If you are new to eating bitter greens, you may want to reduce the amount of dandelion to 2 cups and increase the basil to 3 cups. Over time you can increase the amount of dandelion as your tastebuds adjust.
