Watercress and Lettuce Salad

From: Linda McCartney’s Home cooking, p. 78

A fresh salad with sharp watercress and lettuce, with a mustard vinaigrette.

I had never actually tried watercress and it has been on my mental shopping list since I started my “cook all of Linda’s recipes project”. Yesterday, I visited a huge farmer’s market in central Hamburg with my daughter and found- watercress! I loved its sharpness and crunch and will certainly keep it on my mental shopping list 🙂

I thought that the onion and garlic were too dominant in the dressing and I would recommend using a very simple vinaigrette with mustard, olive oil and white wine vinegar for this salad.
