Gallant Soldier (Galinsoga spp.) Surely everyone wants to eat a leaf that is named Gallant Soldier. It is a fast growing plant which pops out in the hotter months. It has a very mild herby flavor, a little like parsley and chamomile.
Well dressed, it offers an excellent salad ingredient. It is also very good cooked and can be mixed with other greens or served on its own as a side.
