Chickweed Salad
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons walnut oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
6 cups chickweed leaves and tender stems (about 6 ounces)

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. 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.
Servings: 4
