This description is for Valerianella locusta: Valerianella locusta is also known as Corn Salad or Lambs Lettuce. The edible foliage is dark green in colour and grows in rosettes, close to the ground. Its a good salad vegetable, especially as it has three times as much vitamin C as lettuce. It contains many other vitamins too. The name Corn Salad comes from the fact that it often grows as a weed in wheat fields. It has been eaten in Europe for centuries, being a winter food foraged by peasants. Commercial growth of lambs lettuce was thought to have started in London around the late 18th century.
