Happy Sunday all! The recipe of the day is Leftover Duck & Spinach Salad – rich & filling, bursting with flavours!
This is one of the best leftover salads I’ve made. 🙂 I simply had to get rid of a few products in my fridge but turned out they were a great addition to this beautiful salad.
And because it’s Sunday I think we all deserve some rest and a simple and easy recipe that doesn’t require lots of time and efforts. What better than a Leftover Duck & Spinach Salad.
I kind of love Sunday, as they’re quite relaxing, this is probably the only day of the week that I stay at home (most of the time). Well, I still have to do a bit of cooking and cleaning but that’s ok. I love cooking and as far as the cleaning is concerned, I aim to finish with it early in the morning so I can get the rest of the day off. 🙂 Yes, early in the morning because we’re usually up by 7.30 thanks to our beautiful daughter who is always so excited for the weekend. Seriously, during the week I can barely wake her up at 8 for nursery. 🙂 But it’s all good.
We usually have an early Sunday supper, a bath for the kids and then a movie night for mummy and daddy. 🙂 This is what we’re looking forward on Sundays. It may sound boring (I’m sure I’d thought that’s the most boring thing in the world before the kids) but this is what we love to do, peacefully and quietly! 🙂 Anyone with me? 🙂
Now, I know, not all of you may have any leftover duck at the moment. 🙂 You can simply save the recipe for later on, when you do, or get some cooked duck breast or other pieces you’d like (they sell it in most of the shops). Or even you can use leftovers from your Sunday roast, anything you’d like really. 🙂
This salad would make a lovely lunch too. Let’s say you use your Sunday Roast leftovers. Make this beautiful salad and toss it in a food container in the fridge. Use it as your Monday lunch – great and healthy start of the week. 🙂 Or even save it for your dinner. All up to you really. Just be aware, don’t keep it more than a day or two as the spinach won’t be that fresh and even may go off.
Here’s what you need to make this delicious leftover salad.
- 150g duck, cooked and cut into thin strips or shredded
- 150g fresh spinach
- 1 ripe avocado, sliced
- 10-15 black olives
- 2-3tbsp pomegranate seesa
- 2tbps pine nuts
- 1tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 1tbsp mayo
- 2tbsp lemon juice
- Simply arrange all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Add the seasoning and mix well.

I hope you guys have a lovely Sunday and stay tuned for my next recipe coming up next week! 🙂
