Delicious, succulent purslane is great in salads or on its own.
Dr. Andrew Weil sings the praises of purslane’s nutritional value, including having very high levels of omega-3 fatty acidies, beta-carotene, vitamins A, E, B-complex, and C, iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, and even melatonin. However, it is high in oxalates, so people prone to kidney stones should take note.
