“From Fresh parsley, dill or chives can replace borage if it is unavailable. I wasn't sure what type of onion to use in the salad as it wasn't specified but for color I chose red. If it's another type of onion, kindly let me know and the recipe will be updated. Thanks! May I remind you?: Fresh ingredients-the best you can get.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 head lettuce (I used butter lettuce mixed with red loose leaf lettuce however any heirloom lettuce would be ideal)
  • 1 cup watercress (rocket) or 1 cup arugula (rocket)
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 8 -10 small red radishes
  • 3 tablespoons fresh borage leaves, chopped (and a few borage flowers if available)
  • freshly grated black pepper
  • Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil (I used walnut)


  1. Wash the lettuce and watercress well and spin dry.
  2. Prepare the dressing in a non-reactive container and set aside. Best prepared at least 1 hour in advance.
  3. Combine the salad ingredients together in a large salad bowl with the dressing. Toss to coat.
  4. Garnish with additional borage leaves and flowers.
  5. fyi: A sprinkle of freshly grated black pepper tasted really good on the salad.
