  1. Arrange a bed of watercress in a bowl, then scatter the kiwi fruit, mushrooms and tomatoes on top.
  2. To make the dressing, pour the vinegar into a small bowl, season to taste and whisk thoroughly to dissolve the salt. Add the oil and whisk again.
  3. Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad, taking care not to disturb the arrangement.
  4. Variation: add a few pale purple chive or lavender flowers when they are in season, for extra colour.
