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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Gently toss roasted potatoes, crispy bacon mix, beans and kale and season well. Arrange on a platter and crumble over creamy feta.
