Avocado and Watercress Salad

Ingredients

1/4 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)
1 tablespoon grated sweet onion
1/4 cup finely grated peeled (Braeburn or Gala) apple
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons olive oil
6 cups watercress (thin stems and leaves only; from 1 large bunch)
1 firm-ripe avocado

Directions

Stir together vinegar, onion, apple, soy sauce, and sugar until sugar has dissolved, then stir in oil. Just before serving, toss watercress with enough dressing to coat. Quarter, pit, and peel avocado, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Gently toss with watercress.

One of the great joys each week is opening up my Free Co. box and discovering what they have sent me. I can then plan my meals around the veg and challenge myself with new recipes and ideas. I'm also supporting a truly sustainable business.
