Warm Watercress, Bacon and Apple Salad

Serves: 2 for lunch or 4 as a side dish without the bread

You will need

150g watercress
6 rashers smoked streaky bacon
2 Bramley apples
100ml apple cider
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
Bread rolls and salted butter to serve



Directions

1. Chop the bacon into small pieces.  Cut the apples into quarters before removing the core and cutting into segments. 

2. Place a large frying pan or wok onto the stove on a high heat and add in a half tablespoon of vegetable oil.  Once the oil is hot, add in the bacon and apple and stir.  Fry until the bacon begins to crisp and the apple is coloured nicely on the outside.  Add in the cider and reduce to a sticky consistency.

3. Add in the watercress and stir fry for 30 seconds, making sure it is well coated in the bacon and cider.  Serve in a large dish along with some crusty bread and salted butter if having for lunch, or why not serve with a pork chop and some mashed potato for a delicious evening meal.
