Watercress and Orange Salad

Source: Everyday Food, June 2008

Ingredients

  • 3 navel oranges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 bunches watercress (about 1 1/2 pounds total), thick ends removed

Directions

  1. Slice off both ends of oranges. With a sharp knife, cut away peel and pith. Cut along membranes to remove segments. Squeeze 2 tablespoons juice from membranes into a small bowl.

  2. Add oil, vinegar, and mustard; whisk to combine, and season with salt and pepper.

  3. In a large bowl, toss together watercress and dressing; top with orange segments, and serve immediately.

Cook's Note

The dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead. To store, refrigerate dressing and oranges separately.
