Watercress & Sugar Snap Salad with Warm Sesame-Shallot Vinaigrette
Source: Eating Well

For the best-tasting watercress, look for supple, thin stems (not woody stalks) with small, heart-shaped, dark green leaves that have no yellow blemishes. A member of the mustard family, watercress can be stored in the crisper for up to 4 days but should only be washed right before use.
