For the dressing

  • 1 salad onion, steeped in vinegar
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp wholegrain or Dijon mustard
  • good pinch of golden caster sugar

Method

  1. Heat a non-stick frying pan until very hot. Cut the salad onions in half lengthways and cook for about 2½ mins each side, cut-side first, until charred and tender. Transfer to a plate while you prepare the rest of the salad.

  2. Cook the tomatoes, cut-side down, for 30 secs-1 min until just softened and caramelised, then set aside with the onions.

  3. To make the dressing, put all the ingredients into a jar with some seasoning and shake well. When ready to serve, pile the watercress, onions and tomatoes onto a platter. Give the dressing a quick shake, then drizzle it all over the salad.
