Seeing the discussion on all the the edible salad greens reminded me of how much my kids loved to snack on young Japanese maple leaves. I looked them up and found this really interesting article.

One that they left off was redbud. The young leaves, buds and tiny seed pods are edible.

I think I'll go poke around in the woods and see what's "cooking"!
