Duck Confit Salad

Duck Salad

My husband and I love duck confit but have only made it once and said “we’ll never make that again.”  When we saw ready-made Grimaud Farms duck confit legs at Costco we were excited. All you have to do is cook them in the oven for 15 minutes and voila!

On a recent Sunday afternoon we wanted a healthy lunch with the duck confit that was delicate and healthy with a hint of sweetness. We looked in the fridge to see what we had on hand and found spring mix, tomatoes, turkish feta, corn and pears. While it may seem like a hodgepodge of ingredients, they all worked well together.   The feta gives the salad a salty flavor while the pears and dried cherries work together to give this dish sweetness.

This is an easy, perfect salad for a weekend lunch or dinner which would be well over $12 in any restaurant.  We loved this salad so much that we had it the following weekend, too…but this time with a nice glass of white wine! Bon Appetit!
