  • Summary

    Feel free to use arugula in place of watercress, or shrimp instead of chicken in this bright salad. The pineapple-lime dressing is also great spooned over grilled fish or chicken, or simply stirred into rice.

    Ingredients

    • 1 teaspoon lime zest, plus 2 tablespoons juice (from 1 lime)
    • 2 teaspoons minced shallot
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
    • 3/4 to 1 teaspoon minced habanero or jalapeno chile, stemmed and seeded
    • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped pineapple
    • 1 bunch (3/4 pound) watercress, thick ends trimmed
    • 5 ounces baby spinach
    • 1/3 cup toasted cashews, chopped
    • 3/4 pound cooked chicken breast, shredded
