Ol Smokey Bacon and Kumara Salad Recipe
Ol’ Smokey, Golden Kumara, Feta and Mint Salad
by Hellers - NZ's Butcher
This salad is wonderful on its own or delicious as part of your family meal.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 4

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 200C.

 

Wash the golden kumara thoroughly and cut into 5cm chunks.

 

Line a large ovenproof tray with baking paper and drizzle generously with olive oil, scatter with rosemary, thyme, fennel seeds, chilli flakes and season with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Toss the kumara thoroughly in the seasoned olive oil, cook in oven till tender and the kumara starts to caramelise.

 

Using scissors cut Ol’ Smokey roughly into medium size pieces and fry off in a pan till crispy, remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a large bowl.

 

Make a tangy dressing; whisk into the hot bacon fat left over in the pan a dash of white wine vinegar, a dash of Dijon mustard and a crack of pepper. Set aside somewhere warm until you’re ready to dress the salad.

 

Allow the kumara to cool a little then transfer to the large bowl with the Ol’Smokey. Crumble over soft creamy feta and plenty of freshly chopped mint. Toss together gently, it presents really well piled high lengthways along a large flat platter.

 

Finish by drizzling the tangy hot bacon dressing over the salad and another handful of chopped fresh mint, parsley and spring onions.

Bacon Strips

Dad always cut up small bits of bacon, so he had it on hand when we needed a real flavour hit to any meal.

A great way to use the bacon strips is as a topping on pizza. They’re ready to go and easy to use. We like to pair it with our Pizza Salami, and add some mushrooms, capsicum and lots of mozzarella!
