Method

To make the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients, then season. (This can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days.) Peel the cucumber into long, thin strips with a vegetable peeler, discarding the seeded section. Just before leaving, arrange the watercress, cucumber and radishes in a portable container. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.

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.
