What to do with watercress?

I have great neighbors! Today they brought me a grocery sack full of watercress; beautiful, fragrant and fresh - but there's a lot of it.

Anyone have any ideas for using it? I've had watercress soup and watercress in salads before but that's about it and could use some inspiration.

Spinach dip and chinese food? Those are two that I can think of.

How about a crusty french roll, garlic mayo,avocado,watercress dressed with some evoo and vinegar, tomato,thin sliced grilled chicken your choice dark or light meat..be sure and mash that avocado so it will stay in place, and add a little garlic to it.

Egg Salad sandwiches with watercress as the "lettuce" are soooo yummy.

I want to try it in a potato salad.

And these recipes look yummy.

Good suggestions keep em coming. Tonight I am thinking about making a souffle using chopped cress instead of the more common spinach.

Watercress (and also arugula) are delicious as a sub for lettuce in a sandwich. Adds much more character.
