Arugula Salad With Smoked Duck Breast Cherries And Hazelnuts Recipe


  • 4 large handfuls arugula
  • 4 tbsp hazelnut oil
  • 4 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 smoked duck breast, cold, thinly sliced (Smoked duck breast is available at most gourmet food markets, like Whole Foods, or online)
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, roasted and finely chopped (I like to make a "dust" with mine)
  • 1 cup very sharp, good aged cheddar (I used something called Robusto, a hard aged gouda, which I also bought from Whole Foods)
  • kosher salt


This Simple Appetizer Is A Study In Balance: The Smoky Meatiness Of The Duck, The Tartness Of The Cherries, The Sharpness Of The Cheese, And The Peppery Arugula.
