Did you know that watercress is one of the most nutrient-dense foods? It’s true! Packed with vitamin K, which promotes healthy bones, and antioxidants, cruciferous watercress is in the same family of vegetables as cabbage, kale, and Brussels sprouts. This dish puts a twist on classic Caesar salad by swapping the lettuce for watercress.



  1. Mash the garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt with a fork in the bottom of a large salad bowl. Stir in the mayonnaise, anchovy paste and mustard. Whisk in the lemon juice, then the olive oil. Stir in 2 tablespoons Parmesan and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the watercress to the bowl and toss to coat in the dressing. Top with the almonds and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.
