Watercress and Tangerine Salad with Red Onions and Black Pepper Vinaigrette

Yield:
6 servings.
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon style mustard
  • 2 teaspoons cracked black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Scant 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tangerines, peel and pith removed and cut into segments
  • 2 bunches watercress, coarse stems removed, washed and dried
Directions

In a bowl, combine the sliced onion with ice water to cover and let soak for 30 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette.

In a glass bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, pepper, salt, and cayenne until thoroughly blended. Drizzle the olive oil over in a thin stream, whisking constantly until all the oil is incorporated.

Drain the soaking onions, pat them dry with paper towels, and separate into rings. In a large bowl, toss the tangerines and the watercress together gently. Drizzle over enough vinaigrette just to coat and toss again. Mound some salad onto the plate and scatter a few onion rings over the top.
