  • 4 slices jowl bacon, thin cut

  • 1 organic shallot, sliced thin lengthwise
  • 1 organic navel orange, peeled and chopped

  • sea salt

Cooking time 10mins


Step 1

Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the jowl bacon. Let cook for 2 minutes, and flip. Cook another two minutes, just so each side has browned and crisped up slightly. Remove from skillet and drain.

Sauté the shallots over medium-high heat, until caramelized. While they cook, chop the jowl bacon and begin building the salad.

Place spinach and oranges in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt. Toss and divide onto plates. Top each salad with the jowl bacon and sautéed shallots. Serve immediately.
