Smoked duck salad


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Wrap the beetroot individually in foil and cook in the oven for about 30 mins until tender when pierced with a sharp knife.
  • Remove and, when cool enough to handle, peel and slice into rounds.
  • Then put the red onion, cucumber, radishes and parsley in a bowl, together with the lemon juice, 6 tbsp oil, seasonings and balsamic. Toss until well combined.
  • To serve, arrange the beetroot in rounds on individual plates, mound the salad in the centre and top with the duck. Sprinkle with a little fresh oil and garnish with the mini herbs.
