We've deconstructed a classic BLT and turned it into a delicious warm salad. You'll serve up crispy bacon shards with roasted baby potatoes, avocado, red gem lettuce, shallot rings and juicy cherry tomatoes, all drizzled with a zippy mustard mayo dressing. Yum! (Gluten and dairy-free, suitable for coeliacs).
