FOOD: Watercress Salad with Creamy Poppyseed Dressing

Hi Made By Girl! This is Jen from Pretty Eats coming to you with an elegant & refreshing (end of Summer) lunch, Watercress Salad with Creamy Poppyseed Dressing. The most gorgeous bunches of watercress have been popping up at my local farmer's market and I couldn't resist taking some home. Watercress is a powerhouse food, full of cancer-fighting nutrients, and great in sandwiches and salads. Pairing this peppery green with a light creamy dressing makes for a winning combination!

Watercress Salad with Creamy Poppyseed Dressing


Poppyseed Dressing
    •    1/2 c plain whole fat yogurt
    •    1/4 c crumbled cheese, such as feta or goat's cheese

    •    1/2 tsp sea salt
