Watercress Salad with Garlic Croutons
An elegant combination of watercress and crisp lettuce dressed with vinaigrette, this delectable salad has the added treat of crunchy, garlicky croutons.
Rub the cut side of the garlic over the surface of the bread slices. Cut the bread into medium cubes. Put bread cubes into medium mixing bowl and drizzle lightly with olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt. Toss well, place bread cubes on baking tray and cook until golden brown (approx. 10 mins) in oven at 180°C/350°F/gas mark 5.
Prepare the watercress and lettuce. Line a salad bowl with the lettuce leaves. Toss the watercress in the vinaigrette until well coated. Pile the watercress inside the lettuce leaves and scatter the croutons over the top.
