Watercress Salad

Better days when we could cook together
Being on bed rest is bad enough but not being able to cook can make a girl down right sad!  My beloved Trent made me a wonderful salad for lunch that tasted like a little bit of spring in every bite.

Watercress Salad

1 bunch water crest, washed and trimmed
1/2 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
1 6 oz. can Mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup fresh sliced strawberries

     Drizzle with a light poppy seed dressing.
                                                          Watercress is a wonderful veggie.  It contains vitamin A, C, iron, calcium, folic acid, and iodine!  In fact, watercress has so much vitamin C that English sailors would eat it on long voyages in an effort to prevent scurvy!
