Smoked Duck & Fig Salad

I recently visited an amazing French Market and bought the most delicious hard goats cheese. It was fantastic on its own with a chunk of French bread, but it also worked really well in this seasonal salad. Figs and blackberries are at their best at the moment and I am finding it hard to resist using them in everything. This smoked duck can be bought in most supermarkets already sliced which certainly speeds things up. Kale when roasted has a superb texture in salads and lets not forget its nutritional value. My dressing which has a sweetness to it, pulls the whole dish together brilliantly and is so easy to make. ⠀ ⠀
