Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F/Gas 5).
  2. Place an ovenproof non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Season the duck breasts with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and place in the pan, skin side down. Cook for 6-8 minutes, until most of the fat has rendered and the skin is crisp. Turn and cook the other side for 1 minute.
  3. Transfer the frying pan to the oven and cook the duck for 6 minutes on medium, or until done to your liking. Set the duck aside to rest for a few minutes, then thinly slice it.
  4. Combine the watercress, radicchio, apple, spring onions and duck sliced in a bowl.
Dressing
  1. Whisk the oil and vinegar in a small bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Pour the dressing over the salad, gently toss together and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Variation: Replace the duck with a boneless, skinless chicken breast, or use a cooked Peking duck breast from the supermarket. You could also use slice of left-over cooked turkey. Instead of apple slices, use orange segments.
