Watercress Salad with Mango & Avocado

Sweet and peppery; tangy and mild!

Servings: 4 people
Ingredients
Dressing
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 2+ tbsp White Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp shallots, minced
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
Salad Ingredients
  • 1 Ripe mango (not overly ripe)
  • 1 Ripe avocado (not overly ripe)
  • 4 cups Watercress
  • 1/4 cup Red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Salted Petitas (also known as pumpkin seeds)
Instructions
  1. Make the dressing first. Mince the shallots and add them to the rest of the all ingredients. Stir well to combine. Or better yet, shake in a jar.

  2. Thinly slice the mango and red onion. Slice up the avocado into wedges and cut in half.

  3. Combine the salad dressing (you might not want to use all of it...use your judgement as to how much. You don't want the salad to wilt under the dressing) with the watercress and toss. Fold in the avocado, mango and red onion. Sprinkle with Petitas
