Bacon, Bean and Blue Cheese Salad

Throughout the last few weeks we have tried out a range of different salads – some better than others. In the next week or two we will blog about those recipes that we liked the most 🙂

The salad for todays blogging is a salad filled with proteins and great taste. If you can’t get edamame bean in your local super market, you can try to look in one of the many Asian grocery store. If they fail to deliver too, you can replace the edamame beans with horse bean or peas, but remember that the taste of the salad will change, as the beans are the main ingredient.

 

Ingredients (3-4 servings)

5-6 leafs romaine salad

1 cup edamame beans

5-6 slices bacon

1 red onion, sliced

1 tsp. blue cheese

1/8 cup pine nuts, roasted

1 tbsp. grainy mustard

1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp. sugar

2 tbsp. olive oil

Salt

Pepper

 

Shred the romaine leafs and arrange on a plate, followed by the edamame beans and the sliced onions.

Combine the mustard, vinegar, sugar and olive oil in a bowl. Stir for a few seconds and season with salt and pepper. Pour the dressing slowly over the salad.

Cut the bacon into thin slices and fry on a pan. Transfer the fried bacon to some paper towel to let the fat drip off. When all the fat has dripped off and the bacon is crisp, sprinkle it over the salad. Finish up the salad by crumbling the blue cheese over the salad followed by the roasted pine nuts.

Serve with a steak and a good French baguette 🙂
