Salads can be a little boring from time to time, most of us like to eat salad as more of a healthy option to cooked meals. Adding meat to a salad makes it much more exciting and filling.

Ingredients

200g pack of bacon lardons or smoky bacon bits

2 slices white bread

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp balsamic vinegar

240g barbecue-style chicken breast slices

135g bag of watercress, baby spinach and rocket leaf salad

Method

  1. Dry-fry a 200g pack of bacon lardons or smoky bacon bits until crisp and golden. Remove from the pan with a draining spoon and put on a plate lined with kitchen paper. Scissor-snip 2 slices white bread into small squares. Add to the hot fat in the pan, adding 1-2 tbsp olive oil if necessary, and fry over a medium-high heat until golden.
  2. Drain these croutons on kitchen paper.
  3. Whisk together 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tsp balsamic vinegar in a serving bowl. Add 240g barbecue-style chicken breast slices, cut into thin strips, and toss to coat in the dressing.
  4. Add a 135g bag of watercress, baby spinach and rocket leaf salad, and toss again. Scatter with the lardons and croutons. Serve with bread, if you like.
