I've always loved watercress -- the fresher, the better! Now that I've brought my self-taught-but-marginal culinary skills up a notch, I want to feature watercress in my lunchtime salads and dinner sides. (Case in point: I'm planning to prepare a salmon filet with a honey-soy glaze, accompanied by a lightly wilted watercress salad and roasted sweet potatoes.)
Note: I've already done a Los Angeles-area Chowhound search for this thread. Considering that the economy has crushed the life out of numerous establishments, I'm hoping that fellow CHers can come up with current information on watercress availability. Since my better half and I work full time, we frankly don't have a lot of time to drive to a distant location -- that's why I'm hoping that any suggestions will be within a 10-mile radius of the Placenita-Yorba Linda area.
Many thanks, in advance, for your help. :)
