Watercress Salad with Avocado Zucchini Dressing

Jump to Recipe

Watercress is lately on top of my list for salads. Have you ever tried watercress? It has a unique flavour, fresh and kind of grassy tasting. For some people it might be strong in taste and for others is just fresh tasting. It can definitely, be very strong on its own but when you add the dressing it takes the watercress salad to the next level with all the fresh herbs and spices. There is so much flavour in this vibrant salad and I hope you give watercress a try.

These beautiful greens are known to be the oldest leaf vegetable consumed by humans. It is a perennial plant native to Europe and Asia. I thought that was pretty cool to know.
