  1. In a bowl, combine the cranberries, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, garlic and salt. Whisk in the olive oil slowly to emulsify.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine the watercress, fennel, radicchio and pecans. Stir the vinaigrette and pour over salad. Toss well and serve at once.


Crumbled gorgonzola cheese would be a fabulous addition to this already delicious salad.
