  1. I love this! It is called veldsla in Dutch and I can’t remember what it is in German. In English it is called Lamb’s Lettuce – I made a sandwich with this, apple chutney and Brie and had the pics on my blog a few months back but I have taken it down

  2. thanks for clearing that up, lisa! i had no idea what it was in english. i’ve only ever seen it here in switzerland. bruno saw it once in sydney, years ago. ‘nussli salat’ means ‘little nut salad’, i think ; ) although the leaves don’t taste too nutty to me, more buttery, and totally delicious witha creamy garlicky dressing. we serve it here with chopped hard-boiled eggs on top. it’s one of the few good winter geens.

  3. Another name for Lamb’s Lettuce is Corn Salad.
    The French call it mâche and doucette (Sweetling)
    and the Germans call it Feldsalat………
    It’s the easiest plant to grow in a cool weather climate: Here in Tasmania it pops up (self seeds)on every bare patch of soil every autumn and grows all through winter. It’s as successful as forget-me-nots without the annoying seeds. As soon as it gets a bit too warm it just goes to seed……

  4. My Mum also thought that it was watercress, which really surprised me. We used it in a watercress and pear soup recipe at Christmas time and it certainly worked!
