SBcanning has found this tasteful, tart dressing to be used in potato salads, in your favourite or mixed green salads or your favourite sandwiches to add that special tangy flavour. What is so special about watercress is that it creates a crunchy sandwich, potato salad or a mixed greens salad, contains zero calories, and is especially healthy as it is a perennial that grows in on the sides of the streams, and its pungent leaves give a special zippy taste to soups, salads and sandwiches. I will mention below the soup recipe and salads, so you may look those up after the Healthy Living Dressing Recipe.
