Roast Duck Salad

Since the Royal Chef is on a no-carbohydrates diet, sad to say I am included in this torture diet as well. Though it’s not so bad, since I needed to stay away from rice, too.

This recipe is quite healthy, but you still get to be a carnivore.

Royal Chef could have preferred duck breast, but it wasn’t available in the market. So leg it is.


3 pcs duck leg

2 cups cherries (no cherries? use peach)

baby spinach


spring onions – chopped

1/2 cup peas

1/2 cup carrots – finely sliced

1 cup water

five spice powder

salt, pepper, sugar to taste


Salad Dressing

1. Remove cherry stones, use 1 cup for the dressing

2. Place in saucepan

3. Add a cup of water

4. Add a teaspoon of sugar, a pinch of salt and pepper to taste

5. Bring to boil for 20 minutes and reduce

6. In a bowl, pass cherries in a sieve, use fork to squeeze out juice
