I gathered some miner's lettuce to make a salad. It took a while to gather this much since there wasn't very much where I went and I didn't want to harvest too much of any patch I found. I also grabbed a bit of wild sorrel on my way back. The salad was dressed with balsamic vinegar.
Discovered I still had some nettles that hadn't gone to seed. Happy day! Harvested the few good leaves (bugs love them this time of the year) and cooked them up in some butter. Kids devoured them and I got a few bites.
I foraged up a salad today. I bet it would've tasted better if I did it back in May. It was amazing to see the volume of wild edible greens living in our field food forest open spaces. I picked some amaranth (weed) in the garden, sheep sorrel, wood sorrel and red amaranth in the food forest and dandelion from the yard. The red amaranth came in as a weed in a transplant and has spread into our field (uncultivated).
To this I added some cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets and homemade chipotle maple syrup dressing.
