Also called: Lamb's lettuce or Corn salad
Corn salad is the name often used in the United States since this green tends to grow wild in many American cornfields.
Lamb’s lettuce is an old English name: this green first appears in spring during lambing season and is a lamb’s favorite food and each leaf looks a bit like a lamb’s tongue.
