Anybody know what this is in English? I found it at the vegetable stand and it was so funny looking that I had to buy it. Basically you eat it as salad, I guess. The flavor was fresh and lettuce-y, nothing special really but it did have a nice crunch. B thought it looked like lilypads.

Hello! I think that is purslane -- great in salads, and very high in omega-3 fatty acids. Pretty cool for a plant, huh?

Neat! I've heard this mentioned in novels but I've never actually seen it in an cooking book/program. I feel like a character in a Jane Austen novel;
