Duck and Roasted Walnut Salad

Recipe: Duck and Roasted Walnut Salad

Ingredients :

  • 2 duck breasts Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup walnuts Dressing (recipe follows)
  • 1 cucumber, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • Dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oils, soy sauce and sugar.

Instructions :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place duck breasts on a rack in a baking pan and season with salt and pepper; roast 45 minutes.
  2. Let cool and slice thin. Spread walnuts on a cookie sheet and roast at 350 degrees 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are brown and give off a rich, nutty aroma; stir once or twice during cooking.
  3. Prepare dressing. Toss a little dressing with cucumber slices and arrange on a platter; fan duck slices on top. Spoon reserved dressing over top and garnish with roasted walnuts and chopped onion.
