Living in Haiti, I noticed they sell lots of watercress so I have put this very nice salad together. It's very refreshing and great to serve as a starter at dinner parties! If you can get some fennel, chop up the white bulb and add into your salad. Unfortunately, I cannot get any here... Am trying to grow it though... ;)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak and wash the watercress and dry.
  2. Open the can of sliced mandarin oranges. Preserve half the syrup in the can.
  3. Add the balsamic vinegar to the remaining mandarin syrup.
  4. Toss watercress, mandarins and pour the vinaigrette over.
  5. Add your olive oil and mix everything together.
  6. Arrange into nice shallow salad plates and add the almond only when serving as they will get soggy.
  7. Now sit back and watch your guests enjoy!
