    • Avocado, Pancetta and Pine Nut Salad

      This looks really yummy and very low carb, so I thought I'd share, it is a Jamie Oliver recipe from this months Delicious magazine:

      Avocado, Pancetta and Pine Nut Salad

      12 thin slices of pancetta
      6 Avocados (ripe)
      4 large handfuls of baby spinach
      50g pine nuts
      2 Tbs of Olive oil (extra virgin)
      1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
      extra oil for frying

      Fry pancetta in a little olive oil until crispy, remove and set aside. Add pine nuts to pan and lightly toast until golden, set aside.

      Peel and cut avocados into wedges and toss with with pancetta, pine nuts and spinach.

      To make dressing, with a whisk, combine balsamic vinegar with the olive oil and season with freshly ground salt and pepper then drizzle over salad.
