Serves 6

  • 1 leaf of oak leaf lettuce or purslane
  • 6 preserved duck gizzards
  • 12 slices smoked duck breast
  • 12 quail eggs
  • 12 walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp pine nuts
  • 1 cup croutons
  • 1 Tbsp mustard (preferably grain mustard)
  • ¼ cup (6 cl) peanut oil
  • ¼ cup (6 cl) walnut oil
  • ¼ cup (6 cl) sherry vinegar or raspberry vinegar
  • salt, pepper


To cook the quail eggs:

  • Bring a saucepan of water to boil on high heat
  • Add the quail eggs to the boiling water and let them cook for 3 minutes
  • Let the eggs cool, remove the shells and cut them in 2

To prepare the vinaigrette:
(see also recipe for vinaigrette with grain mustard, garlic and honey):

  • Mix the peanut oil, walnut oil and vinegar in a bowl
  • Add the mustard and stir in thoroughly
  • Add salt and pepper to taste

The salad:

  • Heat a little oil in a small frying pan on high heat and toast the pine nuts and croutons in the frying pan for a few minutes until they are toasted and nice and golden
  • Shell the nuts and crush them roughly
  • Wash and dry the lettuce
  • Cut the duck breasts into strips
  • Slice the gizzards thinly
  • Put the lettuce, croutons, thinly sliced gizzards, duck breast, walnuts and
  • pine nuts into a salad bowl
  • Pour on the vinaigrette just before serving and stir carefully.


You can also dress the salad once it is on the plates. You just need to put a bed of lettuce on each plate and then distribute the other ingredients evenly over the top. Finish by pouring a generous amount of vinaigrette over the salad and placing a sprig of chervil on top.

You can also add some apples, spinach leaves, etc.

I do not recommend adding slices of foie gras, as the vinaigrette and foie gras do not go very well together, in my humble opinion.
