A tangy, smooth dressing gives the finishing touch to this popular, crunchy salad.


Olive oil

1 tsp

Shortcut bacon

125 g, coarsely chopped

White sourdough bread

80 g, (2 x 40g slices), cut into cubes

Green beans

150 g, trimmed, halved

Light sour cream

cup(s), (80ml)


1 tbs


1 clove(s), crushed

Iceberg lettuce

1 leaf, coarsely shredded


1 large, sliced

Fresh chives

  1. Heat half the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook bacon, stirring for 3-4 minutes or until browned and crispy. Transfer to a plate. Heat remaining oil in same pan. Add bread and cook, turning occasionally, for 5-6 minutes, until crisp and light golden. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the beans in a small saucepan of boiling water for 1-2 minutes or until just tender. Drain and blanch in ice water. Drain well.
  3. Whisk the sour cream, vinegar, garlic and 2 teaspoons water in a medium bowl until smooth. Season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Combine the lettuce, avocado, bacon and bread in a large bowl. Divide between serving plates and drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with the chives to serve.
