Quick and easy and generally always have the ingredients in so a great standby. Living by the watercress beds in Hampshire the watercress is always fresh, crunchy and hot. Perfect with mackerel

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.
