  1. You can either cook your bacon under the grill, or dry fry in a non-stick frying pan. No extra fat is needed.
  2. If using the grill cook on foil under a medium heat for 3-5 minutes each side, if using a pan cook on the hob on a high heat for 3 minutes each side.
  3. While the bacon is cooking dress the spinach leaves with the dressing and arrange on your plates. Thinly slice the apple and lay over the spinach. Sprinkle on the walnuts and crumble the ricotta cheese over.
  4. When the bacon is cooked slice into small bitesize pieces and add to your salad.
