Avocado, Pancetta and Pine Nut Salad

I found this recipe in the Delicious magazine, it is a Jamie Oliver recipe and looks really yummy and would be very low carb!

Avocado, Pancetta and Pine Nut Salad

12 thin slices of pancetta
6 Avocados (ripe)
4 large handfuls of baby spinach
50g pine nuts
2 Tbs of Olive oil (extra virgin)
1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
extra oil for frying

Fry pancetta in a little olive oil until crispy, remove and set aside. Add pine nuts to pan and lightly toast until golden, set aside.

Peel and cut avocados into wedges and toss with with pancetta, pine nuts and spinach.

To make dressing, with a whisk, combine balsamic vinegar with the olive oil and season with freshly ground salt and pepper then drizzle over salad.

Let me know how you go Marshmallow!

Big Daddy, its an Italian bacon, here is a link about it on wikipedia:

If you can't find it use bacon but see if you can find it. If not in your supermarket, do you guys have continental delis in the states? You should find it in them.
