    Categories: Pork, Greens, Bread, Vegetables, Herbs
    Yield: 2 servings

    100 g Smoked bacon lardons
    1 lg Ripe avocado
    sm Bag of baby leaf salad
    Chunk of stale bread
    1 tb Rosemary leaves
    3 cl Garlic
    1 Shallot; finely diced
    3 Tbp balsamic vinegar
    1 ts (heaped) Demerara sugar
    5 tb Rapeseed oil
    Salt & pepper

    Start by preparing the croutons. Set the oven @
    190ºC/375ºF, cut the bread in 1" cubes coat in a little
    oil, season and mix through whole cloves of garlic. Bake
    until golden brown and crisps. Remove and set aside.

    Heat the pan and gently fry bacon until well cooked and
    a little crisp. Set aside, leave the residual fat in the
    pan though to make the dressing with.

    Prep the avocado, cut in half. Carefully remove the
    stone and score the avocado into cubes.

    To make the dressing - reheat the pan with the bacon
    fat, add the diced shallot, cook gently until fully
    softened. Deglaze with balsamic vinegar, whisk in the
    rapeseed oil to emulsify. Add cracked black pepper and
    Demerara sugar.

    Arrange salad between two bowls, scatter over diced
    avocado, the still warm cooked bacon, the croutons.
    Spoon over the pan dressing and season the salad.
