    1. Fry the bacon until crisp and cooked through, then very roughly chop.

    2. To make the dressing, mix the olive oil, vinegar, mustard and honey with 1 tbsp water and some seasoning. Save 2 tbsp in the fridge for another salad (see 'Goes well with'). Stir the spring onions into the rest of the dressing.

    3. Use the chopped lettuce and celery as a base, then arrange the bacon, chicken, blue cheese and hard-boiled eggs on top and drizzle over the dressing. Serve with bread, if you like.
