Watercress is very common in French cuisine, but it is often disregarded by other countries due to its lightly pungent flavour. We love to put watercress in our green salads. Here’s one that matches watercress with blood oranges, tomatoes, and lactofermented tofu dressed in a red-wine vinegar and mustard condiment.

If the benefits of watercress are not enough, this salad also appeases the eye: it looks like a spring garden in your plate!

To prepare it, rinse well the watercress and gently pat it dry with a clean towel. Then, slice it thinly. Rinse the tomato and thinly slice it with a tomato knife. Peel and slice the blood orange, and dice the tofu into small cubes. Put everything into a salad bowl. Then, prepare the vinaigrette by mixing together all the vinaigrette ingredients. Drizzle the salad with the vinaigrette and mix well.

Serve to accompany your vegan protein (it goes well with grilled vegan chicken, oven-baked vegan nuggets, grilled tofu or tempeh). Here, we have also added some beet pickles.

Slice and dice

Rinse well the tomato and watercress. Thinly slice the watercress. With a tomato knife, thinly slice the beef tomato and then slice it again into strips. Peel the blood orange and dice it, paying attention not to squeeze out the juice in the process. Finally, dice the lactofermented tofu into small cubes. Transfer everything to a salad bowl.

3 minutes
