Expert Tips

Watercress gets its name from the fact that it grows in and around streams and brooks. A member of the mustard family, this crisp, leafy green has a slightly bitter and peppery flavor.

Use extra-virgin olive oil for the best and brightest flavor. Because this salad is never heated, the fruity flavor of the extra-virgin oil will shine.
