Watercress salad with caramelized pears, cranberries and blue cheese

Roughly inspired by a recipe on http://www.watercress.co.uk, this was a real treat. It perfectly complemented the duck breast with a sweet orange sauce.

We substituted walnuts for the hazelnuts, and caramelized the pears in a pan with some sugar and water on a the stove top instead of grilling them.
