Post celebrates Fourth with leafy greens

What a great Fourth of July edition from the Washington Post!

The Food Section contains an article about leafy greens, with mentions (and sometimes simple recipes) of purslane, callaloo, Malabar spinach, lamb’s quarters, and dandelion and sweet-potato leaves.  The recipe page contains two “summer greens” recipes.  And as a bonus—but slightly out of the garden—the delightful lead article is about nuns in nearby Virginia who make Gouda cheese.

Maybe the Post editorial staff has caught the infectious disease caused by the “Grow It Eat It Year of Leafy Greens” virus.

Happy reading:

The summer greens you ought to know better,” by Emily Horton.

Recipe for “Purslane, Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad.”

Recipe for “Warm Farro Salad with Lamb’s Quarters.”

The feature story by Martha Miller about the Sister Barbara and 11 other nuns of the Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Crozet, Virginia, who make Gouda cheese.
