Watercress

 Watercress

Popular with everyone, watercress is a bit like rocket, with its own distinctive, fresh, peppery flavour.

I think it's too strong to be used on its own, but it's wonderful combined with lettuce, used as a garnish and for giving its own unmatched flavour to soups and sauces.
