Walnuts and watercress make a great pair. Here the nuts are used both as a dressing and for texture in the salad itself.

Ingredients

½ cup peeled walnuts

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp honey

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 anchovy fillets (or ½ tsp salt)

1 bunch watercress, picked and washed

1 cup loosely packed mint leaves

Method

Place half the walnuts in a small food processor with the vinegar, olive oil, honey, mustard and anchovies (or salt), and process to a smooth dressing.

Toss the watercress, mint leaves and remaining walnuts in the dressing.

Serve with Adam Liaw's yoghurt roast chicken.
