Bitter dandelion greens

I've had dandelion greens many times, both sauteed and raw. I sauteed some last night with Indian spices, and they were noticeably more bitter than I've ever tasted them. I could not finish a serving. Is there something to look for when buying the greens that can affect the bitterness, or is it just something you either like or don't like?

When I've had them before, I loved them. Last night, however, made me wary to buy them again.
