Prepare watercress by removing stalks. Wash and pat or spin dry.Mix watercress, chopped cucumbers and sliced avocado together.Grate carrot on top of greens.Prepare honey lemon dressing by whisking all ingredients together well and dress salad as desired.


Because the avocado adds a rich texture to the salad, I have found that not much dressing is needed in this simple dish.
