This salad is a lovely way to introduce broad beans to the family and you can’t beat the crispy bacon and creamy feta combination.
- 700g baby potatoes, halved
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- Sea salt
- 2-3 rashers streaky bacon, diced
- ¼ cup almonds, roughly chopped
- 250g shelled broad beans, fresh or frozen
- 1 small bunch kale, shredded
- Sea salt and cracked pepper
- 50g feta
- Preheat oven to 180C. Toss potatoes with 2 tbsp olive oil and sea salt. Arrange in a single layer and roast for 20-30 minutes or until tender and golden.
- Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and saute the bacon and almonds for 4-5 minutes until bacon is crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the broad beans and kale to the pan, then toss together. Add ¼ cup water and cover for 2-3 minutes until bright green and the kale has wilted.
- Gently toss roasted potatoes, crispy bacon mix, beans and kale and season well. Arrange on a platter and crumble over creamy feta.

About Jo Wilcox
"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See www.jowilcox.co.nzmore of this author
