This salad sounds really good quite unusual but thats always good. I love fruity salads. Mangoes and peaches are also good to play around with in savory salads to add some sweetness.

Watercress has a "peppery" taste. When I was visiting my uncle in Western WI over Easter, we went to the local stream and harvested watercress. To grow, it needs a cold stream that is mineral rich...wish I could get it to "take" in the stream that runs through our "bush" ... I added it to salad, and a chicken soup I'd made...I also made a salad dressing using it. The "wild" watercress is not fun to clean--typically you get a lot of bugs with it when you harvest it...but, clean it I did.

Arugula or nastursium leaves can be substituted for watercress.
