“My girls love making this salad. Just as well - we love eating it. Its from their cookbook My First Cookbook. The preparation time depends on your age. And the clearing up after takes a lot longer.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make a French Dressing. Put the vinegar, oil, lemon juice, mustard and brown sugar into the jar. Season with the salt and pepper.
  2. Screw the lid of the jar on tightly and shake the contents well for a minute. Pour into a jug ready to serve.

  4. Chop up the cucumber and apple. Peel the avocado and cut the flesh into medium-sized chunks. Mix with the lettuce.

  6. Allow to drain on kitchen towel.
  7. Slice the warm bacon into small pieces. Gently mix the pieces into the salad. Sprinkle with parsley.
