Duck breasts can be served in many ways – this salad recipe below is one way.

I combined duck breast with iceberg lettuce, pear and pomegranate on the serving plate. I seasoned the salad with a dressing based on pomegranate juice, honey and olive oil.

I make this salad, as well as many other salads that are based on iceberg lettuce quite a lot also because my husband likes to eat light dishes such as this one for lunch. So if you have duck breasts at home and are wondering how to serve them, try the salad below.
