BROCCOLI SALAD

(Adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe.)

Ingredients:

2 heads of broccoli
British smoked bacon lardons (around 160-200g)
3 firm red tomatoes
½ a bunch of fresh chives
½ a clove of garlic
2 tsp Dijon mustard
6 tbsp Seabanks rapeseed oil
2 tbsp white wine vinegar

Method:
  1. Prepare the broccoli by cutting it into small florets, the smaller the better.
  2. Blanch the broccoli in lightly salted boiled water for one minute.
  3. Drain the broccoli and then let it dry on a clean tea towel.
  4. Fry the lardons in a non-stick frying pan until crisp and golden. Set aside to cool slightly.
  5. Once dry put the broccoli in a serving bowl and sprinkle the bacon on top.
  6. Half, de-seed and finely chop the tomatoes and chop the chives. Add these to the broccoli and bacon.
  7. Next make the dressing. In a jug or mixing bowl, crush the garlic and add all of the other ingredients together with salt and pepper and whisk well. This is a good stand-by dressing to have for any salad.
  8. Add the dressing to the salad just before serving.
