Watercress, Cashew and Coconut Salad

This is such a simple salad to make, yet it’s so tasty with a lovely crunch. If you like you can use a combination of rocket and watercress; both are readily available in salad bags and both have a wonderful peppery flavour which goes perfectly with the sweet dressing.
