Delicious. Even kids who usually hate salads and all greens loved it.

Unfortunately, the only watercress I could find didn't look too tasty so tried this with a bag of variety lettuce. Still, a delicious salad that offers something different. Went down well at the bbq and I will for sure make again.

I made this to go with Dorset Sausage Pasties and the peppery crunchiness of it complemented the pasties very well.
