When it comes to a salad leaf that is truly good for you, look no further than Hampshire watercress. Bursting with vitamins and minerals, this peppery little leaf is one of our natural superfoods – and tastes great too. Pile it into sandwiches, toss into salads, use it to make a wonderful watercress soup or watercress sauce, wilt into pastas or stir fries, it’s incredibly versatile – but don’t just leave it to languish on the side of the plate as a garnish
With deep green leaves, and crisp, paler stems, watercress is related to mustard and is one of the strongest-tasting salad leaves available. It has a pungent, slightly bitter, peppery flavour and is highly nutritious.
