DESCRIPTION

Raw watercress has a rich, peppery taste that pairs perfectly with the nutty, buttery, avocado. This salad also includes honey and mango to give it a nice sweet and salty flavor. Not sure what to pair this salad with? We recommend pairing with fish tacos with mango and avocado salsa.

Make sure you properly wash your avocado as you would with any other fruit.
