Watercress and Salmon Salad

For people with MS, this salad is a great combination of immune-supporting nutrients. Vitamin A from the watercress, and salmon which supplies essential omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D. You can cook your own salmon fillet or for simplicity choose pre-packed poached salmon, or lightly smoked chunky slices, opting for the lowest in salt. Finish the salad with a simple drizzle of balsamic glaze.
