Purslane Tomato Cucumber Salad

I promised yesterday that I would let you now what I did with my purslane. Tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, purslane and a wonderful southwest dressing! A perfect background for this beautiful little plant. I am going to go eat lunch now…

    When browsing your recipes, I noticed this purslane salad. We have a ton that grows in our back yard, so last year we pickled some of it! Glad to see something else to make it into this year.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe for purslane. I have seen it at the Farmers Market, but wasn’t sure how to use it. The salad looks delish.

    Sue, if you can’t find it there, check your back yard! It loves to grow anywhere the soil is disturbed. Nothing could be easier to grow yourself (keeping it out of your lawn is the hard part).
    At City Market in Kansas City, it is always Asian vendors who make purslane available. It makes terrific green smoothies, too!

    I’m printing this and making soon. (beautiful photo) I’ve never heard of purslane but will look it up at Midtown Farmers Mkt. tomorrow.
