Method

Heat a large pan and dry-fry the bacon for about 2 mins each side until crispy. Remove and drain on kitchen paper. Keep the fat from the bacon in the pan, add the vinegar and bubble for a few secs before tipping in the peppers and beans. Season and heat through. Toss together the spinach, beans, peppers and bacon, then drizzle with a dressing of your choice.

Simple and delicious! I used 2 grilled and skinned fresh peppers and a tin of mixed beans and it worked really well.
