  Comments:
* Add [lsrc]
* Give more idiomatic gloss
* add katakana (as usual for words from Chinese) and 
alternative kanji (no 々)
As suggested by the unusual kanji, this is from Chinese,
a fact made clear from writing it Chinese-style and 
searching.
(Also from asking your Chinese and Japanese friends and 
seeing that the Chinese ones know it.)
However, it is generally written in hiragana
(ワワ菜 and ワワサイ are extremely rare).
