This is a BEAUTIFUL and HEALTHY salad! I really liked the mix of vegetables which stayed fresh for a long time in the fridge. I used fresh raw green beans. The watercress is especially special in this. My only disappointment was the dressing...I found it oily and flavorless. Next time I will make my own with some fresh herbs and change the ratio of oil to vinegar.
