Shrimp and Avocado Watercress Salad

I had this salad in an Argentinian restaurant and was so thrilled with it that I knew I had to replicate it.  I call it my diversity salad because everyone is invited to the party! just look at all the colors      and textures! The combination of the shrimps, avocados, watercress and lemon dressing is.....well lets just say, there's a party in your mouth! I believe that watercress is in season from April till the beginning of November.  Watercress is my new "super food" ever since new research published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that watercress benefits can supercharge your energy and pump up your workout. What that means is that it will significantly boost energy and athletic performance.
