Deconstructed BLT Salad
Chop your bacon into small strips and fry until crispy. Remove the bacon from the frying pan and leave to rest, leaving the fat in the pan.
Tear your ciabatta loaf into chunks and fry in the bacon fat with rosemary. Grate the garlic (or mince it) and add it to your lovely, browning croutons. Once finished, set aside.
Dressing time. Into a jar pour 5 tbsp of olive oil and your balsamic vinegar, oregano, chilli flakes, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover your jar with a lid and shake the ingredients together until they are well combined.
Roughly chop your basil (saving some for garnish) and lettuce. Add into a large bowl along with your tomatoes, croutons, bacon pieces. Then, pour over your dressing and toss everything together using salad servers. Break your goat’s cheese into chunks and top your salad with it along with a drizzle of the dressing and some more fresh basil. Enjoy!
