Green omega 3 lunch salad


Today I made myself this delicious green salad for lunch. The leafy green I used is called 'winterpostelein' in Dutch, and I'm not sure what the English word for this is... However, a quick Google search brought me to this: winter purslane. I think that's it! It's a vegetable I never heard of until a few months ago, when we started to buy organic vegetables that come in a weekly subscription, and this was in the package a few times already. It's one of those forgotten vegetables of which there are so many, but I'm getting to know them now!

Anyways, turns out purslane is incredibly healthy. It contains iron, magnesium, calcium and loads of vitamin C. Apparently, this is also the vegetable with the highest amount of omega 3. 
To add even more healthy fats to this salad, I added flaxseed oil, which is the best oil to add some omega 3's to your diet, and avocado with, again, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. 


- winter purslane
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 apple
- some pine nuts 
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
- 1 teaspoon mustard 
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- a pinch of seasalt 

Just mix everything together, et voila! 

So, this lunch is quick, easy and loaded with healthy, essential fatty acids and much more! What are you waiting for? 


  1. Looking really good! I am a fan of super healthy salads like that :-). Trying now to find the french name of thi leafy green as neither the english nor the dutch name speaks to me :-)

    1. Hmm, I guess it's as forgotten in every country as here! Lol, I'll check it out for you! x

  2. 'I think it's Purslane that is highest in Omega 3. Winter Purslane is a different plant. I've grown both from seed this year. Both are rather forgotten vegetables and both with health benefits! Rhod

    1. Interesting, I read it the other way around. Anyways, they're both very healthy indeed! Great that you've grown them, I hope to do that too some day!


Thanks for stopping by! I'm always curious to hear what you think...
