Watercress Salad

Alright, this is a total no-brainer salad, and most of you have probably eaten it in restaurants (or maybe at home), but I am in love!

  • Watercress (1 bunch per person)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lemon (per person)
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese (Optional)
Seriously, that is all.  Chop the stalks off of the watercress, which is a wonderful and peppery little green, drizzle a healthy amount of olive oil over the top.  Squeeze your lemons in with the greens, add salt and pepper to taste, and then toss.  I didn't add parmesan (remember, I gained twenty pounds?), but I have had it before with this salad, and it is orgasmic.  Make sure to get a quality cheese, and add some nice curls on top! Voila!  

Seriously delicious, and so refreshing for summer!
