This is simple and delicious as a main dish salad. (It came from a free grocery store magazine!) Serve with some warm crusty bread and a glass of wine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a frying pan and fry the pancetta until crispy.
  2. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, lightly toast the pine nuts. (This happens quickly, don't abandon them.).
  4. Make your dressing by combining 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Taste to make sure your dressing is balanced; add a little more oil or vinegar if needed.
  6. On serving plates, lay out the avocado.
  7. Sprinkle over the spinach leaves, pancetta and pine nuts.
  8. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

This is so good! DH and the kid loved it. When you do your dressing make it a little heavy on the balsamic to cut through all the fat. DH said to make sure I save this one and I agree it is a make again.
