directions

  • Before you start, preheat the grill to its highest setting and let it heat up for at least 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the dressing ingredients in a jug or bowl and whisk them together well, tasting to check the seasoning.
  • Now place the bacon on some foil on the grill pan, and grill until it's very crisp - about 7 minutes - then remove it to drain on some kitchen paper and crumble it into small pieces.
  • Next slice the garlic sausage, first into 1/4in slices, then cut the slices into 1/4in strips. After that, wipe the mushrooms and slice them fairly thinly (but not paper-thin).
  • Next crumble the cheese and peel and slice the avocados.
  • To serve the salad, tear up the lettuce leaves and place them in a large bowl with the watercress and arugula. Scatter in the bacon, sausage, mushrooms, cheese and avocado and mix well.
  • Just before serving, add half the dressing and mix together. Add the remaining dressing and toss again so that everything gets a good coating.
  • Finally, sprinkle over the scallions and serve immediately. This needs lots of good rustic bread on the table.
