Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 rashers bacon, cut into short strips
  • 1 bunch fresh green asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped or crushed
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon sumac
  • freshly cracked black pepper, optional
  • 250 g mesclun salad leaves
  • 1 cup toasted bread croutons , optional

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the bacon until crisp (about 3-4 minutes ). Drain on paper towels.
  • Cut the asparagus into 2 cm pieces and blanch in boiling water until just tender (about for 1 minute). Drain and run under cold water.
  • Peel the skin and pith from the oranges, then slice into segments (catch the juices in a bowl). Peel and slice the avocado and toss in the saved orange juice.

For the dressing

  • Place the egg yolk, garlic, salt, sugar and mustard in a small bowl or jug and whisk until emulsified and foamy. While whisking, slowly drizzle in enough oil until creamy and thickened. Season with the sumac and add a little cracked pepper if desired.

To make the salad

  • Arrange the mesclun leaves on a large platter or shallow salad bowl and top with the avocado slices, orange segments, asparagus spears and crisp bacon.
  • Lastly drizzle with the sumac dressing and garnish with the croutons.
