"Dandelion" Taraxacum officinale question

Happy Chew-sday Eaters :)
I'm really looking forward to springtime; one of my resolutions in 2011 is to use ingredients I haven't used yet---I'm approaching the "Dandelion". I've seen the greens in salad recipes and in soups and stews; but I'm not comfortable starting with it yet.

Question:
Have you ever eaten dandelion? Is this the same Taraxacum officinale weed that grows in the grass? Finally; does it even taste good? How do you prepare it?

Thanks again in advance guys; love ya!
