BLT Gnocchi Salad

This recipe is a summer comfort meal and it is so simple...

If you don't want to make your own gnocchi, you can buy great pre-made gnocchi online from Coori. 

This recipe serves two, or fills two picnic jars. The salad is best fresh but will last in the fridge overnight although the gnocchi will go slightly harder.

(Serves 2)

500g gluten free potato gnocchi
6 rashers streaky bacon, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 handful spinach, rolled into a sausage and chopped 
100g mozzarella, diced 
10 cherry tomatoes, quartered 
Salt & pepper

Cook the gnocchi per packet instructions (if using shop bought), then allow to cool in a bowl. Meanwhile, fry the bacon on a high heat until crisp and golden.

Remove the bacon from the pan using a slotted spoon, leaving the fat behind. Allow to cool slightly then toss it in with the gnocchi, along with the spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella.

Sprinkle over the oregano and seasoning, then drizzle over a tiny bit of the bacon fat for extra flavour. Toss together again and then serve.
