Bacon and Avocado Salad

Our Bacon and Avocado Salad proves that greens don’t have to be boring. The bacon, needless to say, is full of flavour, and the avocado will give you a satisfying creamy texture.

Serves: One

Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 bacon slices
  • 80g green beans, topped, tailed and halved
  • 80g baby spinach leaves
  • 1 French shallot, finely sliced
  • 1/2 small avocado


  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


Preheat grill. Put the bacon on a tray and grill on both sides until crisp. Leave to cool and then break into small pieces. Bring a saucepan of water to boil and cook the beans for four minutes. Drain and run under cold water for a few seconds. Put spinach in a serving bowl and add beans, bacon and shallots. Cut the avocado into cubes and add to salad. To make the dressing, in a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss well to coat. Season to taste, and serve.

    Wrong picture again!!!! Showing ingredients not listed !!!!! Seriously people, when are you going to proof what you are posting on the site. This is ridiculous as it happens almost every time a recipe is displayed. I could do a better job than you do, so if you're too busy to do it properly then give me a call!!! :)
