Sanguisorba minor Scop. - syn.Poterium sanguisorba L.; Poterium muricatum Spach; Sanguisorba lasiocarpa (Boiss. & Hausskn.) Hand.-Mazz. - Rosaceae - garden burnet, little burnet, salad burnet, small burnet, Kleiner Wiesenknopf, (Garten-) Pimpinelle

„The leaves and flowers are said to own a slightly cucumber-like taste. Both can be used in cold drinks and in salads. Also, they are used to flavor marinades, sauces, chicken and fish dishes.“

„A survey of compositional characteristics of the aerial part of sheep's burnet (Sanguisorba minor ssp. muricata) growing in Mediterranean French pastures has been undertaken… Besides the major component, cellulose (20.4%), amino acid analysis showed that proteins contained mainly glutamic acid plus glutamine (0.67%) and aspartic acid plus asparagine (0.56%). The main fatty acids were palmitic (29.1%), linoleic (22.6%), and linolenic (21.4%).“
