Kumquat, Cucumber & Avocado Salad

Kumquat, Cucumber & Avocado Salad

This salad is simple to make with a spicy peppery bite from the watercress, sweet citrus from the kumquats and fresh crunchy cucumbers. 




1/2 cup kumquats, thinly sliced and seeds removed with freshly cracked pepper to taste.

1 cucumber, thinly sliced

1 ripe avocado, sliced

4 cups watercress, washed and large stems trimmed

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted

1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper


2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon orange zest

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 teaspoon ginger, minced

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 tablespoons sesame oil



Make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients until well combined. Set aside. 

In a small sauté pan, toast the sesame seeds until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Set aside. 

In a medium bowl toss the watercress with half of the dressing. 

Place the watercress on serving dishes and top with sliced kumquats, cucumber and avocado. Drizzle remaining dressing on top, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper to taste.
