Meet purslane. It is a weed, but a good one. Purslane has succulent fleshy leaves and stems with a slightly acidic flavor, close to that of spinach and watercress. This leafy vegetable offers some neat health benefits; it features in itself Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, including vitamin A, vitamin C, and some vitamin B, as well as important dietary minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iron. It can be fried, sauteed, pickled, and in its raw form it can be used to make this delicious salad from Turkey. Refreshing, piquant, and crisp. Worth trying.
