2 tsp. vegetable oil
2 skinless duck breasts, 4 oz. each (or substitute chicken or turkey)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 bunch (6 oz.) watercress
1 large carrot, peeled
1.0 cup of Ginger Dressing Magnifying_glass
3/4 cup toasted Georgia pecan halves
2 tbsp. minced radish, red part only, optional


  1. 1
    Heat the 2 tsp. oil in medium skillet over high heat. Sprinkle duck breasts with salt. When oil is hot but not yet smoking, add duck. Reduce heat to medium high and cook until well browned—about 5 minutes; turn duck breasts and cook until browned on other side but pink in the middle—about 4 - 5 minutes longer. Transfer duck to cutting board and let rest 5 minutes.
  2. 2
    Meanwhile, remove and discard tough stems from watercress. Cut carrot into thin matchstick-size sticks and combine with watercress. Toss salad mixture with half the Ginger Dressing. Mix remaining dressing with the pecans.
  3. 3
    To serve, thinly slice duck and divide among four serving plates, fanning slices. Arrange watercress mixture in a small mound on each plate and spoon pecans on top. If desired, sprinkle with radish to garnish.
