Traditional southwestern French flavors—meaty duck breasts, duck cracklings, toasted walnuts and nut oil—pair with sweet, tangy raspberries and slightly bitter frisée to make this completely original salad. Slideshow: Main-Course Salads

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the duck skin and fat in a pie plate and bake for about 15 minutes, until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then break into pieces.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, spread the walnuts in a pie plate and toast for 8 minutes; coarsely chop.

Step 3    

In a large bowl, mix the vinegar with the mustard and shallot. Gradually whisk in the walnut and vegetable oils. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add the frisée, Boston lettuce and walnuts and toss to coat. Top the salad with the raspberries, sliced duck breast and cracklings and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Pour a lightly fruity Bordeaux rosé with this salad.
