Watercress is an excellent addition to salads and sandwiches and makes a colorful edible garnish.
This green can be steamed with fish, vegetables, poultry, used to flavor and color dips, added to omelets, quiches, braises or stir-fries, and is especially delicious over rice.
Watercress blends well with kiwi, orange, and grapefruit for making taste-tempting fruit salads.
To prepare, trim roots; wash thoroughly, but quickly.
Watercress is high in cancer-fighting phyto-nutrients as well as antioxidant vitamins C and A.
