Watercress is commonly used in salads or as a garnish, but it also makes a delicious cooked green vegetable. I don't know what it costs in the grocery store, but here it is free for the picking. It grows in our creek and in the ditch along the road.
There is e. coli in our creek, and what's in the ditch water is unknown, so we don't eat the watercress raw. But with so many other wild salad greens around we don't mind having to cook this tender, mild-flavored green.
