Spring Tonic

Scott Phillips

Servings: 2

Watercress’s bracing vibrancy makes it an invigorating addition to green juice, especially when paired with a tart apple. A sweeter apple will make a more mellow juice. If you don’t have a juicer, you can make this in a blender and strain it.

Ingredients

  • 2 ribs celery
  • 1 apple
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 medium bunch watercress (about 6 oz.)
  • 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger (optional)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice; more to taste

Preparation

  • Cut the celery, apple, and cucumber into pieces that will fit in the mouth of a juicer. Set aside a few sprigs of watercress for a garnish, if you like, and run the remaining watercress, celery, apple, cucumber, and ginger, if using, through the juicer into a pitcher. Stir in the lemon juice, adding more to taste. Serve garnished with the cress sprigs, if using.
