He found time to share a simple but tasty and fresh salad recipe with us with a surprising ingredient – purslane.

Sure, purslane’s a weed – but it’s also great to eat and contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable. Eat young leaves raw as salad greens or cook older leaves the same way you would spinach or silverbeet.

This tomato purslane salad recipe keeps things super-simple and lets the deliciousness of fresh, firm tomatoes shine through!
