Thai-Inspired Crispy Duck & Arugula Salad

Pin It

Remember how much I love Sarah Fragoso? She just posted an awesome recipe for Thai “No Peanut” sauce that anyone with a well-stocked Paleo pantry can throw together in a few minutes. This well-balanced sauce/dressing is downright remarkable –I bet you could drizzle some on an old shoe and it would taste yummy!

Tonight, I threw together a simple yet scrumptious salad with pantry staples and items from my weekly vegetable CSA box. What follows is not a strict recipe but merely a suggestion — please feel free to substitute whatever you have on hand. Most South East Asian saIads combine spicy, tangy, crunchy, savory, and sweet so try to come up with a combination that incorporates all of these components.

Wanna see how I made it? Follow the jump!

Here’s what I assembled to feed 4 people:

Here’s how I made it:

I washed and prepped the veggies…

…mixed the dressing…

…and fried the duck legs in duck fat.

Then, I tossed the veggies with the dressing…

…and topped them with the crispy duck legs.


Dinner was yummerific and done in a flash!
