Got some smoked salmon? This is one of my favorite appetizers to serve while I prepare the rest of our dinner. Served with a glass of white wine, it will keep the hungry from bothering you in the kitchen.
1 bunch of watercress, washed throughly, torn in smaller pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 shallot, finely chopped
a splash of red wine vinegar
olive oil, salt, pepper
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar and olive oil. Add garlic and shallots and season with salt and pepper.
2. To serve, arrange salmon slices on a plate. Top with watercress pieces. Drizzle with the oil-vinegar dressing.
