Recipe: Pesto and purslane sandwich

Sandwiches and bruschetta with herbs
June 01, 2012

PurslaneEvery spring the purslane grows spontaneously in many empty pots and I water it with love and harvest all summer long.


For a quick snack, I spread some buns with a special pesto, enriched with walnuts, gorgonzola cheese and roasted peppers, then I added a nice bunch of purslane.

I love purslane and buy it at the farmers market when I can find it. This sandwich looks wonderful--I love the pairing with the pesto. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays. ;-)
