Recipe: BLT Salad


With it being the first official day of summer this week in London, I though what better time to share this fresh summer salad.  Think of this salad as a classic BLT, without the bread! It is so incredibly easy to make and perfect take along to a picnic or BBQ and great for those warm nights having dinner out on the balcony or in our case, on the roof top garden. I promise it will be a huge hit!



Ingredients
  • 1 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 cups of lettuce   
  • 8 slices streaky bacon
  • Half a block of feta cheese
  • Handful of coriander
  • Half a cucumber

Ingredients for vinaigrette
  • 6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard
  • Juice of a small lemon
Directions
  1. Chop bacon into thin slices and in a large nonstick pan, fry the bacon over medium-high heat until crispy. 
  2. Chop up everything else into bite size squares and combine in a bowl, add bacon once it's finished cooking and crumble feta over the top
  3. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and mustard in a small bowl and pour over top of salad once ready to serve.

Ridiculously easy to make and totally delicious!
