Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Arrange the onion wedges on one side of a baking tray. Drizzle with ½ tbsp of the olive oil and season. Put in the oven and roast for 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the peas in boiling water for 2 mins, drain and rinse in very cold water. Set aside.
  3. Make the dressing by mixing together another ½ tbsp of the oil, the vinegar, mustard and seasoning. Turn the onions, and put the bacon slices and bread next to them on the baking tray. Drizzle the remaining oil over the bread. Return the tray to the oven for 12 mins more, until the bacon and bread are golden.
  4. Put the lettuce and peas in a bowl, add the dressing and toss to combine. Arrange the onion and bread on top. Break up the bacon slightly and scatter over. Drizzle with a little more olive oil, if you like, and eat straight away.

Really enjoyed this salad, had to make a couple of changes as only had back bacon (so cooked it on the hob as opposed to in the oven) and used white wine vinegar as opposed to cider as that was all I had.

Love warm salads and this one is an easy salad to make. Used air dried ham and cubes of ciabatta bread. Just keep an eye on how everything is cooking in the oven. Very tasty dressing. Will definitely be eating again soon.
