Salad Burnet is a clumping perennial that grows 40-60cm high. The leaves have a nutty-cucumber flavour that goes well in salads and soups. Use alongside or as a replacement for lettuce in sandwiches and wraps. Use the younger leaves as the older ones may become bitter.
It's a long lived plant that grows easliy. It will sucker from rhizomes and self seed but is easily controlled and won't become a pest.
The leaves contain vitamin C, B and A, calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium.
