Sweet Potato Tops With Lemon Juice, Vinegar, Tomatoes And Green Onions

Picture above is what I had for lunch today. The sweet potato tops or what we call in Cebu "gay"(pronounce "guy" as in dude in English) came straight from my garden that I am growing myself. I am fortunate enough that the sweet potato tops is easy to find here. I bought mine at a local nursery here in our area. A lot of people here in America don't know that you can eat the sweet potato tops or vine. They use it for foliage in the garden because of it's dark purple color leaves.

Anyway, the way I fix this dish is exactly how I remember my mama used to fix hers and that is to boil the leaves first, when it is tender, drain the water, then add lemon juice and vinegar.Then chopped tomatoes, green onions or onions and salt to taste and voila! A healthy and yummy dish!
