This was the first time I had watercress with a tuna salad. Very nice. Like an earlier reviewer I think I will skip the boiling part next time I make it. The sour cream made the salad a bit watery but when mixed again before serving it's OK. Liked the combination very much but will add some tabasco next time as it needed a little kick. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Spring '08
WONDERFUL! I made this with fresh chopped watercress, a whole can of great northern beans, half the tuna and twice the onion. I used an immersion blender for the dressing which I added the garlic too and then then mixed the dressing with the other ingredients and enjoyed it atop shredded red cabbage. YUM! Made for the Beverage tag game.
This is a beautiful and tasty salad. I had never had watercress before and wasn't sure I would like a whole salad of it--it tasted very floral to me, but it blended wonderfully with the tuna, white beans and salad dressing. I will make this again and again, but next time I think I'll skip the boiling step and just mince the garlic and cress before adding it to the tuna mixture. Thanks for posting mersaydees!
