Watercress is one of the bunches that attracts me from the shelves. Even it reminds me 'SEMIZOTU' my favourite veggie in Turkey, they are not related at all and their taste and texture are far from each other. On the hand, watercress is very reach in minerals like iron, calcium, iodine and vitamins like A, B6 and K. I have been using Watercress with salads mostly but could not really come to the most tasty recipe solution to it until today. This salad is a good combination of fiber. vitamins , minerals and vegetable protein. It makes a great lunch in these sunny days. Try it you will not regret !!
