Ode to Salad Cress


Cress has a peppery flavour
Ideally suited to most food needs
Even as a peppery seasoning
Use the fresh or dried seeds

Cress is not just for egg sandwiches
It’s a garnish for most other foods
Deliciously added to soup and salads
And for all manner of taste moods

Cress is high in nutrients
With substantial vitamins to boot
Even several dietary minerals
All packed in those little shoots

Cress is just more than cress
Cress stands up against the rest
Cress is a plant of finesse
So why not choose cress for the best
