Winter Salad with Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette
Time Required: 10 (10 min. total)

This is a wonderful, fresh side dish to balance out all the richness of the season.  Watercress is one of the so called super foods because of it’s nutrient dense storehouse of vitamins and minerals, most notably Vitamins A and C.  It is so similar to a scrumptious Waldorf salad that you might be inspired to add a few cut red grapes if you like fruity salad.


1 bunch watercress -- cut bottom of stems
5 cup(s) red lettuce
4 stalks celery -- cut 1/4" pieces
1 apple(s) -- sliced thin 1/2-1" pieces
1/4 cup(s) dried cranberries
3 oz(s) bleu cheese -- or feta
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp honey
1 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard


1.  Toss watercress, lettuce, celery, apples, cranberries and blue cheese in salad bowl.

2.  Mix next four ingredients together in small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Toss with salad when ready to eat and add salt and pepper to taste.

“Not many people realize that Watercress is a better source of vitamins C, B1, B6, K, E, Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, and Potassium than Apples, Broccoli, and Tomatoes…It is a true SUPER-VEGGIE!”
