Chickweed Salad

This is delicious, and barely a recipe. Chickweed is the flavor of summer; it tastes the way freshly shucked corn smells—raw and haylike. Substitution: Any mild green, such as lamb's lettuce will do.

  1. 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  2. 4 teaspoons walnut oil
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 6 cups chickweed leaves and tender stems (about 6 ounces)
  1. Pour the lemon juice into a large bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chickweed, toss until evenly dressed and serve at once.

Suggested Pairing

A light, snappy red with a peppery quality and oak-free finish like a French Sancerre Rouge would pair nicely.
