Watercress is a slightly bitter, peppery-tasting green with small leaves. It has a slightly sharper taste than arugula, and makes a delicious base for salads.


  • 1 large bunch watercress (about 1.5 pounds), rinsed and spun dry
  • 2 oranges
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon regular mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • Sea salt and pepper


  1. Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, remove the white pith and then cut out the sections. Place the orange into a bowl with the watercress and then sprinkle the mixture with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Put the olive oil, honey, mustard and vinegar into a small bowl, and whisk vigorously to combine. Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste and then pour over the salad. Toss the salad to combine and then serve.
