One of the most popular greens in Mexico, peppery watercress joins here with the fresh tastes of parsley and mint; an exotic and interesting combination that is also a good way to use up any excess herbs in your garden. Parboiling the garlic mellows its sharpness and heightens the earthy flavor and buttery consistency.
Regular table salt
1 head garlic, separated into cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
3/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Bring a small saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil and add table salt to taste. Add the garlic and parboil for about 3 minutes to soften slightly and mellow the flavor. Drain and let cool.

Place the cooled garlic in a small bowl and add the oil, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Whisk to dissolve the sea salt and form a dressing.

In a salad bowl, combine the parsley, mint and watercress. Drizzle the dressing over the greens and toss to coat evenly. Serve immediately.
