This weeks recipe has been an adventure. I heard originally heard this on another podcast which I then attempted to recreate before finding this recipie from whole foods market.
3 slices bacon, diced (I used some smoked streaky bacon)
1 small yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced (I didn't use any onion but will next time)
1 Gala apple, cored and diced (I used an apple from stores)
1 bunch chard, well rinsed and slices (fresh out the garden)
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- I put a frying pan on the hob and placed the bacon in the pan and cooked.
I removed the bacon and put to 1 side.
The recipie I found says at this point add the onion to the pan with the fat from the bacon. I didn't do this but next time I will.
I added the apple to the bacon fat and cooked for about a minute stirring all the time.
I added the chard and cooked until just wilted.
I placed the salad on a plate to serve, scattered the bacon over the top and seasoned.
I really enjoyed this dish as a side very tasty with the bacon tasting right the way through. I also like that this had no added fat as the bacon has enough in it.
