Watercress Salmon Salad with Wasabi Dressing

Watercress Salmon Salad with Wasabi Dressing

This salad is not for children. The Watercress is peppery, and Radish and Red Onion are also peppery, and even Wasabi is added to the dressing. Fresh Wasabi is preferable, but it’s impossible to find for me. I used the tube Wasabi Paste.

    Place Watercress, thinly sliced Radish and Red Onion and Salmon pieces in a large bowl, add a pinch of Salt. If Smoked Salmon is used, you don’t need the salt as most Smoked Salmon is quite salty.
