Simple Watercress Salad With Lemon-Dijon Vinaigrette

Watercress has a delicate but peppery flavor making it the perfect base for this simple salad.

Drizzle with my homemade, easy lemon-dijon vinaigrette. The perfect nutritious side salad in minutes!

– lemon juice – Dijon mustard – sea salt and pepper – extra-virgin olive oil – watercress – pitted olives – crushed nuts/seeds to top


In a small bowl or food processor, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, and sea salt until mixed well.


Add 3 tablespoons of the oil slowly, while mixing constantly until the dressing is well blended. Season with sea salt and pepper and any other spices you’d like.


Lightly rinse off any dirt and shake or pat watercress dry. Snip the stems with leaves off roots and discard any thick stems that may be tough to eat, keeping thin stems.


Then, dress watercress with the vinaigrette, and serve as a side or base to your favorite protein!
