I had never tried making pesto with watercress before, so I thought why not give it a try. I was afraid it would be too watery. Like with any recipe, I tailor the ingredients to our family's palette. I used 3 cloves of garlic, substituted olive oil for the mayonnaise, and added a couple pinches of salt. To round out the flavor I put in a tablespoon each of sour cream and yogurt and 1/8th cup of milk. Processed the whole thing and left it to sit on the counter for 30 minutes before serving on pasta. We had a bit left over and the kids fought over who got to use it on their bagel in the morning. Cool, refreshing change to the richness of basil pesto. Great for summer! Can't wait to try it on a salad.
