So, you’ve watched Part 1 of my Urban Spring Foraging series and learned how to locate a number of tasty edible greens in the urban wild. Now, let foraging expert, Leda Meredith show you how to make an easy wild greens pesto recipe with the foraged goods she gathered in the park.

Just note, it’s not your typical basil pesto. Instead, it has a garlicky, bright, earthy, forest-like flavor that definitely says to your boring winter vegetables: spring is here.

So, get out there! Free food awaits… And if you don’t want to go at it alone and roll the dice on your newly acquired plant ID skills, you can click here to find out about upcoming Spring/Summer 2011 foraging tours/classes with Leda.

Thanks for watching food. curated.! Happy foraging!
