Cucumber, Onion And Purslane Salad

  • SERVINGS: MAKES 2 TO 3 CUPS OR SERVINGS
  • FAST
  • HEALTHY
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 3 cucumbers
  2. 2 very small fresh onions, white or red
  3. 1 1/2 cups purslane
  4. 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  5. 1 small garlic clove
  6. Salt
  7. 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  8. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  1. If the skin of the cucumber is sweet and tender, leave it on. Otherwise, peel it. Halve the cucumber lengthwise and scoop out the seeds; chop the cucumber into bite-sized pieces. Quarter the onions, slice them crosswise very thin, then combine them with the cucumbers in a bowl.
  2. Wash the purslane in a few changes of water—it's often sandy since it grows along the ground—dry it, then break it into small clumps. The whole plant is tender so stems can go in too. Add it to the cucumbers, along with the parsley.
  3. Pound the garlic with a few pinches salt until it's smooth, then add the vinegar and whisk in oil. Check the balance and adjust, if needed. Pour over the vegetables and toss well. Refrigerate for up to one hour before serving.
