Duck Salad with Wild Rice, Pecans, Grapes, and Orange Dressing

"To make a complete meal, this main-dish salad only needs a loaf of crusty French bread and a glass of wine to round it out. If boneless duck breasts are unavailable (ask your butcher), substitute 1 pound of pork tenderloin for the duck."

I didn't actually eat any of this because I don't like duck, but my husband raved! I used less green onion than called for, about 1/4 cup. It's a great easy way to use up all of those ducks he...

First time I had ever prepared duck. Roasted a whole duck because individual pieces were not available at my grocery store. Was delicious
