Warm Mango & Bacon Salad

varm lunchsallad

I'm happy to report that the béarnaise sauce I attempted for the first time yesterday was great! No problems at all - and certainly no reason to be afraid. I'll report in more detail in a few days.

Here's a delicious salad, perfect for a lunch. I always find it a bit difficult to fix lunch on weekends - we usually have a fairly late breakfast, and often a fairly fancy dinner, but you need *something* to keep you going mid-day. This salad definitely fits the profile.

Warm Mango & Bacon Salad
Serves 2

2 handfuls of arugula/rocket
2 spring onions, finely sliced
handful of basil, shredded
70 g bacon, diced
1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
handful of green beans, blanched in boiling water for a few minutes
diced mango - about a handful
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
parmesan cheese, flaked

Fry the bacon until crispy. Add the onion wedges for a few minutes so that they caramelize and soften sligthly. Rinse and dry the arugula, and mix with spring onion, basil and the green beans in bowls or on plates. Top with mango, onions and bacon. Drizzle over a little olive oil and vinegar, and finish with a couple of parmesan flakes.
