        60g (1/2 cup) walnut halves
    •    1 apple, cored, thinly sliced
    •    100g goat's cheese, crumbled
    •    1 bunch rocket leaves, coarsely torn
    •    2 baby fennel, ends trimmed, shaved
    •    4 (about 200g each) duck breast fillets

For Raspberry Dressing:

    •    2 tsps honey
    •    1 tsp Dijon mustard
        60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil
    •    2 tbsps red wine vinegar

  1. To make the raspberry dressing, combine the oil, vinegar, raspberries, mustard and honey in a screw-top jar and shake until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat oven to 180C. Scatter walnuts over a baking tray. Bake for 6 minutes or until toasted. Remove from oven and set aside.
  3. Season duck breasts well with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the duck for 4-5 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Cut duck across the grain into thin slices.
  4. Combine the rocket, fennel and apple in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Divide among serving plates. Sprinkle with walnuts and goat’s cheese and top with duck. Serve immediately.
