I fell in love with watercress when making my watercress soup with zucchini and turmeric last winter (do you remember seeing the recipe?). Its peppery taste is very interesting.
A few days ago I spent the Easter week-end on the Ouessant island (in Brittany, West of France). This place is so wild and beautiful. Talking about wildness, we found watercress at the source of a small stream just next to the sea. After a few days eating watercress soups and salads, I prepared pesto for a change, to go with the sumptuous fresh fishes. The association worked very well.
Note that you can use this recipe with other fresh herbs.
