This is yesterday’s salad, inspired by one in this Leon cookbook (I know I say it a lot, but this is genuinely one of the most useful cookbooks I own).
I went to the supermarket with good intentions and bought loads of veg for it, but then I came home and found bacon so that had to go in too.
Anyway, here’s what’s in it:
- Broccoli and beans, boiled for about 2 minutes
- Bacon, then chicken and croutons fried in the bacony oil (and then a bit of garlic because I love a garlicky crouton)
- Baby leaf spinach, added to the pan for the last 30 seconds
- A bit of garlicky oil drizzled over the top, because I hadn’t got enough garlic in there yet…
I felt like it needed something a bit crunchier in there too, so I’ll experiment with that tomorrow and report back…
