Ingredients
 

  • 4 small duck breasts, crisscross cut, just through the fat with a sharp knife

For the Dressing

  • 100 g cherries, (from 175g cherries, roughly) in a fresh smooth cherry puree
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar (approx. depends on the sweetness of the cherries)
  • 75 safflower or sunflower oil
  • touch of water to let the dressing down if needed
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Salad

  • 75 g watercress
  • 75 g lamb's lettuce
  • 3 Little Gem lettuce, cut into long thin wedges
  • 75 g Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 75 g fresh cooked croutons
  • 12 pickled cherries (see recipe below)

Instructions
 

  • Heat a medium frying pan, and then season the duck breasts really well with salt and pepper.
  • Place skin side down into the pan and gently cook for 4-5 minutes.
  • Turnover and cook for a further 4-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the breast.
  • When firm to the touch, remove the pan from the stove and cover with foil, leave for at least 12-15 minutes.
  • Next, place the puree into a bowl and add the mustard, vinegar and whisk together well.
  • Add the oil so that the dressing emulsifies, then adjust with a little water and season to taste.
  • Place the leaves into a large bowl, add a few spoons of dressing and lightly mix with a pair of tongs; the colour is stunning.
  • Add the cheese and croutons, lightly mix season well with salt and pepper.
  • Slice the duck very thinly across the grain of the flesh.
  • Place a pile of salad on a plate, then add half the pink duck slices, top with more salad and the rest of the duck.
  • Serve with 5 pickled cherries around the salad and serve.
