Purslane, Cucumber & Tomato Salad with Mint

Purslane is a nutrient-packed green with a bright, lemony flavor and a delicate crunch. Many gardeners in the U.S. consider it a weed, but Cypriots use it to make refreshing salads.

If it isn’t growing in your own yard, try calling a local vegetable farmer, who might be pleased to give some away, or you can order it from or Watercress makes a peppery substitute in this simple salad recipe.
