Ingredients

For the dressing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the dressing ingredients together with 1 tbsp water and season with salt and pepper. Boil the beans for 3 mins until just cooked, drain in cold water, then drain again.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then sizzle the bacon for 4 mins until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the bacon into a large salad bowl. Use the fat in the pan to fry the bread cubes until crisp, then tip them in with the bacon. Tip a splash more oil into the pan, very briefly fry the mushrooms just to rid them of their rawness, then turn off the heat. When the mushrooms have cooled slightly, tip them into the salad bowl along with the beans and avocado. Moments before serving, add the spinach and dressing, then toss really well so everything is coated.
