Salads. Watercress

Category: Vii Wild Food On The Trail

There is no more refreshing salad than the _watercress_ gathered fresh
from a cool, running brook. It is a common plant, found almost anywhere
in streams and brooks. Its smooth green or brownish leaves lie on the
top of the water; they are compound, with from three to nine small
rounded leaflets. The flavor is peppery and pungent. Watercress

sandwiches are good. The white flowers are small and insignificant and
grow in a small cluster at the end of the stem.
