  • Summary

    You might run across purslane, with its glossy, plump leaves, at a farmers market—and you might even find it growing in the cracks of your sidewalk or in your yard. Luckily, this incredibly nutritious and juicy green is a weed, which means it pops up wild nearly everywhere. Lots of chopped parsley and a simple vinaigrette flatter its herbal, lemony crunch.

    Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
    • 1/2 pound cherry tomatoes (preferably assorted heirloom varieties), halved or quartered if large
    • 6 cups packed tender purslane sprigs and leaves (from a 1-pound bunch)
    • 4 cups packed flat-leaf parsley leaves (from 2 large bunches)
