Beet and purslane salad with raspberry vinegar

I see purslane (Portulaca in German) in the Turkish Market here once a year, for about a week, then it’s gone.  So when I see it, I grab it up.   Today I enjoyed it for dinner two different ways.  First I made a salad of diced beets, fresh purslane, some grated parmesan, and raspberry vinegar.  Then as my second course, I sautéed the remaining leaves and smaller stems briefly, then added an egg to make a purslane scrambled egg, which was also very tasty.  I wish I had bought more!  Maybe they’ll still have it on Monday…
