Watercress Salad

June 2021
Reading time 15 minutes
Sophisticated salads are the order of the day, not too heavy but satisfying, delicious and nutritious.  Dorset-based chef Suze Morrison has developed some seriously different summer salads each containing lashings of British watercress, which is in season from May until October.

Grown in Dorset and Hampshire in specialist beds dating back to Victorian times, fresh watercress is one of the healthiest veg you can buy.  It not only contains over 50 vital vitamins and minerals, but gram for gram it boasts more calcium than milk, more Vitamin C than an orange, more folate than a banana and more Vitamin E than broccoli. Added to that, watercress is a rich source of fibre and of crucial antioxidants, both vital for gut health which is linked to immunity and mental health. It’s also high in Vitamin A and rich in iron. So, this summer, pile fresh British watercress onto your plate (it’s virtually calorie free), get a welcome fiery kick, and know you’re doing yourself a whole lot of good.  Here are three feisty recipes to get you started.
