Recipe: Lebanese Fatoush (Purslane Salad)

Salads with aromatic herbs

When I discovered this recipe I promised to prepare it with my first purslane harvest and so I did, although I must admit that I was missing some ingredients from the original recipe, like cucumber and the traditional thin Arabic bread.

We use this vegetable in Indian Cooking too. I knew its name in my language and thanks to you now I know what it is called in English. I will make salad like this soon.

I have yet to taste raw purslane. I have only used it in soups. This looks like a very nice way to prepare it.
