Best Vegetables to Grow in the Shade

I would like to be able to use some of the shaded areas in my yard to grow food. The sunny spots are used for regular vegetable but I was looking for something edible that would do well in shade.

   I found this article from Food freedom that lists the best veggies to grow in the shade. I just knew there had to be some. So now my salad fixings and root veggies will grown in the shade which will free up some space in the raised beds for more of the sun loving vegetables.
