Watercress, Salami, and Goat-Cheese Salad
Watercress is not the most commonly used salad green, but its peppery bite makes it one of the most delicious. Baking the croutons is certainly a no-fuss method, but you can sauté them over moderate heat if that seems easier for you. Terrific Green Salads
Mix some arugula in with the watercress leaves; just be sure to have a total of about three-and-a-half quarts of greens.
Use strips of pepperoni instead of salami.
Add some chopped tomato.
Italy's light, thirst-quenching Bardolino will make a super sipper with this salad. Almost more of a rosé than a red, Bardolino can be utterly charming when made by one of the Veneto's many small artisanal wineries.
