Preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F).
Place the duck legs confit on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Move the tray to the top rack under the broiler at the end of cooking to brown the duck even more.
Remove from the oven and place one confit leg on a bed of roasted vegetables per serving. Drizzle with the strawberry balsamic sauce. Serve immediately with rice salad. Decorate with fresh strawberries.
Strawberry balsamic sauce
In a small saucepan, sauté the garlic and strawberries in the duck fat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add remaining ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Mix and simmer slowly over low heat, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes before mashing with a potato masher. Serve.
