Watercress is so delicious! It has the flavor of spinach but with a small touch of pepper and mustard. It is sold in bunches and most likely placed in water containers to prevent the leaves from wilting.
According to the USDA nutrient database 1 cup of watercress provides only 4 calories, and has 41 milligrams of calcium, 112 milligrams of potassium, 14 milligrams of vitamin C as well as other vitamins and minerals.
To prepare, wash the leaves thoroughly in cold water and rinse them well, repeat several times being careful not to damage the leaves. Meanwhile, chop any fruit you like such as oranges, apples, tangerines, add diced tomatoes, sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Another example, is this watercress salad with avocado and pomegranate seeds with a vinaigrette. Enjoy and tell me if you like it!
