Prawns, bacon, ranch dressing – it’s as simple as it is tasty!

Ingredients

• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 3 slices bread, crusts removed and cut into 1cm cubes
• 150g baby spinach leaves
• 2 Lebanese cucumbers, quartered lengthways and cut into2 cm pieces
• 2 avocadoes, peeled and diced 2cm
• 12 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
• 4 shallots, white and pale green parts only, sliced finely
• ¾ cup ranch dressing
• ½ kilogram large cooked prawns, shelled and deveined

 Method

1. In a large non-stick fry pan over medium-high heat, sauté the bacon until golden brown, about 4 minutes.  Remove from the pan with tongs, leaving the fat in the pan, and place onto paper towel to drain.

2. Add the olive oil to the pan and when it is hot, add the bread.  Fry for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the bread is golden and crunchy.  Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel.

3. Assemble the salad just before serving.  In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cucumbers, avocadoes, tomatoes, shallots and the ½ cup of dressing and toss through gently.  

4. Arrange onto a serving platter and top with the prawns, bacon and croutons. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the top.
