Instructions

1

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Lay the bacon in a single layer onto a lined baking tray and bake on the middle shelf of your oven until golden brown and crispy, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.

c) Meanwhile, tear the ciabatta into roughly 2cm chunks. Pop the ciabatta chunks onto a large bowl. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat well.

d) When the bacon has 10 mins remaining, bake the croutons on the middle shelf until golden, 8-10 mins, then remove both from the oven and set aside to cool, 5-10 mins.

2

a) Meanwhile, halve the baby plum tomatoes.

b) Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh out onto a board, face-down. Slice into 0.5cm thick slices.

c) Trim the baby gem, halve lengthways, then thinly slice.

3

a) Once cooled, chop the bacon rushers into large, bite-sized chunks.

b) In the large bowl, combine the lettuce, tomatoes, ranch dressing, croutons and three quarters of the cheese. Season with pepper, then toss to coat.

c) Divide the dressed salad between your serving bowls, then lay the avocado slices and bacon on top and sprinkle over the remaining cheese to finish.

Enjoy!
