Mediterranean Purslane Salad

This is a great Mediterranean style salad. Add croutons or toasted pita chips if you like! It is best to let the salad marinate at least 30 minutes.


1 bunch verdolagas

Cucumber, approximately 1 cup chopped

Tomatoes, diced, about 1 cup

1 small onion, chopped

2-3 tablespoons lemon juice, and/or red wine vinegar

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Feta cheese, if desired

Salt to taste


Rinse the verdolagas well in a bowl of water. Remove any large, woody stems. Chop into bite-size pieces. Toss all the ingredients (except feta) together in a salad bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Garnish with feta, if using, and serve.
