  • Finely chop the cucumber, onions, and celery, then place into a bowl
  • Chop the Little Gem, then the spinach and watercress
  • Finally, using scissors, snip in the mustard and cress, then mix well
  • Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a liquidiser and blitz well - it will emulsify fairly quickly; you may need a little water to dilute slightly
  • Pour over the chilled salad and really mix well
