Scallop and Bacon Salad

Clearly, this is not the healthiest salad in the world! There are far too many crunchy, oily, salty bits for good health. But boy it tastes good. It's just a big pile of leaves, dressed with the last of my chocolate balsamic reduction and topped with fried bacon, lovely plump scallops, crunchy garlicky croutons and a good seasoning of black pepper. I deglazed my pan with a little more balsamic (plain, not chocolate) and poured that over the top too.

As ever with a warm salad, it needs to be eaten immediately, before the leaves wilt.

I love scallops with the roe on!

Yum! This looks scrumptious! It would be my Mum's idea of heaven, so I might have to whip this up for her soon. Did the chocolate reduction work out well? I've never tried anything savoury with chocolate except a mexican chicken dish I make. Becks xxx

Leafy - they were lovely ones.

Mother - me too! We don't see them very often.

Becks - the chocolate reduction is delicious. Well worth making!
