Serves: 2-4


  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 3 cups spinach, roughly chopped
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 medium English cucumber, chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)

  • 5 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 2 tsp fish sauce (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp honey

  1. In a large bowl, combine the watercress, spinach, onions, tomatoes, cucumber, mint and cilantro. Set aside.
  2. Peel and halve the hard-boiled eggs. Chop the whites into quarters, set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mash the egg yolks roughly with a fork. Add the lime juice, fish sauce, honey and crushed red pepper. Stir until the mixture is smooth and fully combined. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until thinned enough to use as a salad dressing. Drizzle over the salad and toss gently to combine.
