Natural Watercress Salad with Citrus Fruit


Winter is the season for grapefruit and oranges. (Really. You could look it up.)

The bright flavors of this salad are perfect for a chilly day - you can taste sunshine in every bite. Serve it with good crusty bread and some cheese for lunch or a light supper.
