Duck Salad | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

It’s a bit more interesting than Chicken, but it’s something usually associated with Hoisin sauce, or sweet sauces, which, sadly are chocablock with calories and Points which makes me very sad. 

Summer is on it’s way, so we’ve started thinking about Salads. Salads don’t have to be boring, no no no!

Duck Salad | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

This one is pretty fruity, as duck is one of those meats that goes really well with fruit. In there we have Orange segments, Grapes and Pomegranate seeds, a lovely fresh salad which takes no time at all to prepare.

No need to take the skin off the Duck or indeed cut it up! They’re Gressingham mini Duck fillets so the skin is removed already – and are often on the 3 for £10 offer at the supermarket.

If you’re using normal duck breasts you’ll have to remove the skin and slice them into strips.

Cook them for 3 minutes on each side in a hot frying pan, then for the last minute put in the Sweet Chilli sauce. Bingo! A super slimming friendly and exciting salad!

Blue Dragon Sweet Light Sweet Chilli Sauce is lower in Points and calories but you can use whichever sauce you prefer – just make sure you check the nutritional values of whatever you use.
