This salad is a result of an evening out and an oh-so-great salad. The crispiness and saltiness of the duck complimented the sweetness of the apple so well, it was like its own little dance on my lips. Arriving home later that night, I knew exactly what I was going to try to recreate for dinner the next day. After experimenting and tweaking,  this salad became one of my favorites. Easy to prepare and elegant to serve, it’s a winner anytime, from a simple dinner to an elegant affair.
