I Eat Salad Now

IMG_7264 IMG_7270This week is salad week, because today I spent the day at Cadbury World and bought incredible amounts of chocolate to cover me for the next month, so I have to get my five-a-day/week from somewhere.

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…
