"A simple way to enjoy purslane, which is a weed that you might be able to forage in your own backyard! Purslane has more omega-3s than any other plant source and a pleasant lemony flavor. Here I toss it with a simple mix of cherry tomatoes and cucumber for a cool salad with nice crunch."

  1. Combine cherry tomatoes and cucumbers in a salad bowl. Sprinkle generously with salt, stir well, then leave to sit while you prepare the purslane.
  2. Rinse purslane well, then pat dry with a tea towel. Pick off any large leaves and the tender stems at the top and place in a bowl. Discard the larger sections of the stems.
  3. Check tomato-cucumber mixture; by now, tomatoes should have released juices thanks to the salt. If not, stir well and let sit 5 minutes more.
  4. Add purslane to the salad bowl with the tomatoes and cucumbers. Drizzle with olive oil and toss well. Serve immediately.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If the tomatoes don't release much juice, you can add red wine vinegar to taste along with the olive oil.
