The inspiration for this warm salad was southwestern France’s classic cassoulet: a slow-simmered white bean stew featuring duck confit. Our lighter, faster twist marries the slightly bitter bite of watercress with the richness of duck meat and the sweetness of the dressing. It makes a great side for this meal, but could also take centre stage as a main. You can cook the veggies an hour or two ahead of time, but the salad is best thrown together just before serving.

Preparation

Salad

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  2. On the prepared sheet, toss the tomatoes and onions with the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Be careful not to overcook as the tomatoes should maintain their shape. Let cool.
  3. On a large serving platter, spread the lima beans in an even layer. Top with the tomatoes and onions.
  4. In a bowl, toss the shredded duck confit with the watercress. Arrange the mixture in the centre of the salad.

Dressing

  1. In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salad.
