Also called "mâche" (particularly in France but also elsewhere). It's pretty easy to grow and doesn't take up much room.

I've seen it in some of the salad-in-a-bag offerings, and (very) occasionally at the farmers markets, but other than that it's not a common item here.

I buy it all the time at a store right down the street. But it also carries several types of cress regularly too.

How did mâché appear on a potato salad thread?

It was an ingredient in one of the potato salad recipes that someone posted above. They called it by the name "cornsalat."

I see it quite often at Produce Depot and the Asian markets. It grows everywhere here.

When I was growing up and when I lived in Germany, potato salad was always served warm...with bacon and the bacon fat used in the dressing, caraway and radishes were also always part of Great Grandma Lizzy's Kartoffelsalat. Or, maybe my Grandma added those! Lizzy died b/4 I was born.

That's how I have always been served German Potato Salad. Warm with bacon and the bacon fat as part of the dressing. For a while it fell out of favor because of the bacon and fat being such an important ingredient. I just can't imagine having it made any other way. Yum!!

Let's not pick on that person. The person wrote "...an authentic..." which implies one of several or many authentic recipes.

Glad to see you jumping in with both feet again TL.

And while we are at it, I would like to make a request of our long time members. Please check the number of posts of the person asking a question. I have noticed several times it is a first time poster, and no one is giving them the welcome each new member deserves. Grant you, more often than not, their first post is not if the "New Members" folder, but they still deserve a hearty welcome from all of us. After having a couple of new members log on, I have missed that they are new. I learned my lesson and I now automatically look to the left to see who is writing the post and how many posts they have to their credit. I may not have an answer to their problem, but I always have a welcome from my heart for them.

You have a valid point Taxi.

Wow, you're really going to do this again Addie?
