Yes, that's right, you can put together this salad in just 5 minutes total. You also don't have to use a single pot or pan. All you have to do is whisk the blue cheese, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper in the bowl you're going to serve your salad in. Pile on the watercress, cherry tomatoes, and sliced red onion, toss to coat, and enjoy! It really doesn't get much easier than that. You can also turn this side salad into a heartier offering—or light lunch—by adding slices of filet mignon, flank steak, or chicken breasts or thighs.
