Watercress Salad

What a tragedy that watercress usually arrives as a bit of sad, soggy garnish on top of your steak ? and most people leave it uneaten on the plate. This delicious relative of the nasturtium is good for stomach infections, food poisoning, anaemia and cancer protection, so deserves to be eaten in substantial quantities. I ate this salad in a Chinese beach caf? overlooking the Indian Ocean in Mauritius where watercress is the most popular of all salad vegetables. It is rich in vitamins A, C and E, the powerful antioxidants that protects against cardiovascular disease as well as cancers.

It not only contains a benzyl mustard oil which is a powerful antibiotic but is specifically protective against lung cancer in smokers. If you can?t quit, eating 6 ounces a day helps neutralise cancer-causing substances from tobacco.

Add all this to the fact that watercress is also a useful source of iodine ? essential for the thyroid ? and you?ll see why I?m such a fan.

8 oz watercress
2 oz fresh mint leaves
2 oz chopped parsley
1 large thinly sliced onion
Juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Toss everything together and eat with fish, meat or pasta ? I guarantee you?ll love this unusual and extremely healthy combination.
