This sophisticated starter more closely resembles a pesto, and its peppery, nutty flavor goes great with our Black Pepper Lavash.

Game plan: If your bunches of watercress are large, try adding them to the food processor a little at a time, pulsing as you go.

You can make this dip up to 3 days in advance.

This recipe was featured as part of our Neoslacker Interactive Thanksgiving menu.
