If you are really in a hurry you can use tinned carrots for this salad, otherwise you should use fresh baby carrots or the small Dutch ones.


  • ¾ lb carrots (350 g)
  • 2 oz hazelnut kernels (


Prepare the carrots and leave them whole if they are very small. Boil them in salted water until not quite tender. Drain. When they are cool put them in a salad bowl and mix the watercress and the hazelnuts in amongst them. Toss with the French dressing.
