Well, not all of them of course, but some common garden weeds are not only edible but also tasty as well. In the video below Dr John Taylor from Wild Food Adventures takes a walk around the garden and finds six common weeds that can provide an excellent alternative to the boring old salad of lettuce leaves. The six weeds John recommends are Eastern Blue Violets and Miner’s Lettuce whose mild flavor is given some bite by the addition of Wild Mustard and Sheep Sorrel. To complete the salad add Ox-eye Daisy and Dandelion leaves which should be finely chopped and used sparingly so as not to overpower the dish. Watch the video below and see what you think.
