  1. Wash, dry, and trim the watercress; arrange it on four plates. On top, put alternate slices of the avocados and pears.
  2. Sprinkle a little of the lemon juice over the stacks to keep their color fresh. Scatter the walnuts evenly over the plates.
  3. Mix together the oil, the rest of the lemon juice, the salt and pepper, and pour over each salad.
