30th September 2017 Katie

We’re proud to support Allergy UK by developing a series of recipe cards.  One of Britain’s favourite sandwiches, the BLT (Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato) has been reinvented into a salad, with no allergens in sight.  Its bold flavours are the perfect accompaniment to the last of the summer’s BBQ, yet it is so versatile that it also packs beautifully for a packed lunch.

Some younger children may prefer cherry tomatoes, so just swap them for your family’s favourites. The ingredients can be prepared and refrigerated up to 2 days ahead, and assembled in just 5 minutes when you need it.  Just double the recipe to feed a crowd.

Allergy UK will be adding a new Pure Family Food recipe each month, and you can find them all on the resources page.

Instructions
  1. Boil or steam the new potatoes until tender, cool under running cold water and refrigerated until needed. Cut in half if required.
  2. Grill the rashers of bacon until crispy, and when cool, cut into 1cm strips.
  3. To assemble - tip the salad leaves onto a serving dish or bowl. Add a layer of potatoes, and scatter on the tomatoes and bacon.
  4. To dress – pour up to 2 tablespoons of reserved tomato oil into a small bowl with the vinegar – if necessary make up the volume of oil with olive oil. Mix thoroughly and drizzle over the salad. Serve immediately.
  5. Note: For a picnic or packed lunch, simply keep the tender salad leaves on top of your potatoes and tip it upside-down to serve. The dressing can be added to the container first to create a ready-dressed salad.
