Mustard Cress is a wonderful ingredient in salads and works well in combination with carpaccio or raw fish. The cress is also a spicy addition to a cold meat or fish dish. Mustard Cress is a good combination with Asian cuisine.

Origin

Mustard Cress is a real traditional Dutch product, and even the seeds are produced in Holland. In summertime fields are coloured by rapeseed and mustard production. Most mustard plants are used for green-fertilisation. However, both Koppert Cress B.V. and the mustard industry harvest the seeds for further processing.
