Pork cutlets with watercress, citrus and olive salad

all details

The emerald leaves of watercress are pungent, peppery and at their best in spring. The fleshy square stems and lush leaves both pack a punch when teamed with roast chicken, roast beef or creamy cheeses.

  • 1/2 large bunch watercress sprigs
  • 1 baby fennel, thinly shaved
  • 1 lime, in segments
