#1 asked if we could have healthier meals and I made this salad for her dinner. She reached home at 8pm as she had band CCA so I just made a portion for her. I’m so proud of myself because I’m a really bad cook and it’s not often I get complimented for my cooking. Ok I know it’s just salad, but even my salads have gone wrong in the past. Just last week, after my 3rd failed attempt at making hor fun, #4 pleaded with me to never cook hor fun again. So let me share with you this really simple salad recipe which #1 enjoyed.
|Duck and Sweet Potato salad
Ingredients: (Serves 1)
A few pieces of cooked duck breast
1 tsp butter
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp water
1 sprig of thyme
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
A bit of black pepper
100g butterhead lettuce
4 large cherry tomatoes
50g sweet potato (steamed and cubed)
A handful of basil leaves
1. Heat a pan and add the butter. When it bubbles, add the thyme, honey and water. Add the duck and mix well. Remove from pan.
2. Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and pepper (which would be the dressing).
3. Arrange lettuce on a plate and drizzle the dressing over it. Arrange tomatoes, sweet potato and duck around the salad and garnish with basil leaves. That’s it!
4. I sprinkled a handful of chia seeds on top. I love adding chia seeds into their food as it’s a great way to up their Omega-3, iron, calcium and fibre intake.
Sane tip: Salads are easy to make and can be whipped up in 15 minutes.
Save tip: You can replace the duck with any other meat or leftovers.
