Watercress-Orange Salad With Blue Cheese

Yield Makes 4 servings
If you can't find watercress, one (10-ounce) package of prewashed baby spinach will be just as delicious. For milder onion flavor, rinse onion slices, pat dry, and then add to salad.


  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 2 navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/2 medium-size red onion, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup sliced)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 (4-ounce) package crumbled blue cheese

How to Make It

  1. Remove and discard tough stems from watercress. Place watercress, oranges, and onion in a large bowl.

  2. Whisk together oil and next 6 ingredients. Drizzle over watercress mixture, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with blue cheese, and serve immediately.
