Chicory, rocket and bacon salad with a mustard and walnut dressing…

December 20, 2010

 This salad is so good, I want all of you to make this, tonight!

Too demanding? Okay make it this week, promise? You won’t regret it.

You need;
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp caster sugar
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
100ml oz olive oil
100g walnuts, toasted and chopped
75g rocket leaves
75g chicory leaves
1 tsp sesame seeds
75g (the best you can get) bacon, fried until crisp

In a bowl whisk together the mustard, vinegar, sugar and parsley. Gradually add the olive oil, whisking all the time, until an emulsion is formed

Add the chopped walnuts to the bowl and mix together. Season, to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
To serve, place the rocket and chicory onto a plate, sprinkle with sesame seeds and spoon over some of the dressing, then place the crispy bacon on top.

This was the last batch of bacon we got from the butchers on North St which ahs now sadly closed down, a massive loss as they were so lovely and they had the best meat!

I need a new butchers in Bristol now… so if you know any good ones let me know, I know G Road has nice ones but without a car this is no good without forward planning! No more Saturday morning trips for bacon sandwiches… gutted!

    There’s the Corn St market on Wednesday? Or Hicks Gate farm is at Tobacco Factory every Sunday – they’re based in Keynsham.

  2. […] didn’t really do anything (except help make the Chicory Salad) but I think the Boy will agree that this is what made it, and is our new favourite […]
