Recipe: Asian Smoked Duck Salad

Spicy Thai Chicken Salad is one of the few foods I buy already prepared.  For years, when we lived in Berkeley, California, I purchased this salad at Andronico’s market.  A few years ago I decided to attempt to make this salad myself.  Of course, I had to make a few changes, including substituting smoked duck breast for the chicken.  I love to prepare this salad during the summer.  It’s very refreshing and low calorie, and it is a great recipe for entertaining since it can be made well in advance.
