I think someone posted this either on Epi ages ago or here- or I may have found it in Gourmet or Bon Appetit. Sorry I can't remember the source.

(serves 6)

3Tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 tsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp honey
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp poppy seeds

2 large bunches watercress, trimmed
2/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
2 pears, peeled and diced

whisk vinegar, mustard and honey in a small bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in the oil. Mix in poppy seeds. Toss watercress and walnuts in large bowl with a little dressing. Do the same with the pears in a separate bowl. Divide the salad among 6 plates. Spoon pears on top of salads.
