Purslane: Weed or culinary delight? Mostly overlooked as an obnoxious plant in the garden, purslane is gaining popularity as a tasty and nutritious addition to salads, sandwiches and more. High in vitamin E and essential omega-3 fatty acids, purslane is a favorite among the staff here at Morris Kitchen. Today for our #MKStaffMeal we prepared a purslane salad with market melon and tomatoes.

Purslane salad with market melon and tomatoes
Peel the melon and chop; add to a bowl with tomatoes and toss lightly with apple cider vinegar, sea salt and olive oil. Add a few large slices of hot pepper to the bowl. Leave these large enough that you can pull them out before serving. They will add a nice level of heat. 
Let all ingredients marinate for 15 minutes and then toss in the purslane before serving.
