Purslane

 

Purslane is originally from the middle east. It is now a common weed to most people. Purslane is a succulent that has a grassy citrus flavor. The flavor is best from a younger plant that has yet to flower. It makes a wonderful addition to salad. I am making it the star of the show in a gremolata to be served with veal chops. I mixed lemon zest, minced garlic scapes, chopped purslane and some chopped capers to make the gremolata. I will pan sear the veal chops then finish in a 375 oven for about 10 minutes and garnish with the purslane gremolata. I get mine at the farmers’ market in town. Keep your eyes open for purslane in your area.
