This is a very simple salad and takes no time to prepare. Watercress Salad with cucumber is a Western style salad but the Wasabi Dressing is full of Japanese flavour, with soy sauce and a good amount of wasabi.
Watercress is a bit bitter, hot and peppery. I was quite surprised to find out that adding another hot spice (wasabi) worked so well with watercress. Wasabi Dressing somehow makes the watercress less tangy….
