Carmela Soprano's Watercress and Orange Salad

In that post in 2010 along with the gnocchi I also mentioned trying to serve Carmela's Watercress and Orange Salad from the cookbook Entertaining with the Sopranos.
Trying is the operative word here.
No problem with finding the navel oranges.
I just couldn’t find watercress.

Instead I bought some romaine. 
I never did find watercress. 
If you can find watercress in you neighbourhood, enjoy.
If you can’t, it worked with romaine.


                        Watercress and Orange Salad

Serves 6

Remove the tough stems from
2 bunches watercress, rinsed and dried 
Place the leaves (about 6 Cups) in a large bowl.

Cut into crosswise slices, then into bit-sized pieces
2 navel oranges, peeled
Place the pieces on top of the watercress.

In a small bowl whisk together
1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.
Serve immediately.
