Watercress Arugula Spring Salad Recipe
My family enjoys all kinds of salads – we love variety. What we like most about this recipe is the flavor combination of peppery with sweet and salty. This salad takes mere moments to whip up but tastes like a fancy salad you’d find at a 5 star restaurant.
This recipe calls for just a few ingredients and makes a really tasty and healthy salad. I purchased everything from our local Akron Whole Foods Market 365.
Whole Foods 365 has an amazing produce section with many, many salad choices. I found the baby arugula in a bag and the watercress in the salad display cases.
You can also find amazing salad dressings in the refrigerated section – some of which are local to Ohio.
There are even more in the grocery aisles.
Let’s talk about the health benefits. Both arugula and watercress are known to be beneficial in preventing cancer. Other benefits include plenty of vitamins & minerals, boosting immunity, thyroid support, and more. The peppery bite from both makes it ideal for a ‘fancy salad’ for special occasions. The combination of feta cheese, radishes, onions, and almonds complete this for the ultimate salad that tastes as good as it looks and is even better for you.
I added this salad to my Easter Feast Recipes here.
