Miners Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata) "Wood Elf Greens" This West Coast native appears abundantly there in the early spring. Succulent, mild-tasting leaves are not unlike spinach in texture and saved many Gold Rush miners from scurvy. This highly succulent, melt-in-your-mouth raw salad green has recently gained popularity in the gourmet greens world. Claytonia even stands up to boiling or sautéing, so it is excellent for use in place of spinach. Enjoy it in salads or lightly steamed. It also makes a charming ground cover in the spring garden. Also known as Winter Purslane, Indian Lettuce, and Wood Elf Greens.
