Step 2

Step 3

Make The Salad

Slice the cucumber into batons, avoiding the seedy core. Cut the raspberries in half. Throw the batons into a large mixing bowl with the almonds, raspberries and lambs lettuce. Slice the meat from the duck leg and pull it into strips. Add that into the bowl while it’s still warm. Season with a little salt and pepper and toss everything together, then divide it between two plates.

Step 4

Make The Dressing

To finish, pour the oil and balsamic vinegar into a mini food processor or spice grinder. Add the blackberries and season with a little more salt and plenty of pepper. Blitz to a smooth dressing, adding a little water if it’s too thick. Spoon over the plated salads and dig in! Serves 2
