Roast Beef & Alfalfa Salad b7637248 b38c 41ea 840d 5de55b85f8db 0 472x310

Cut the roast beef into thin strips.

Rinse the salad leaves, dice the tomatoes and cut the olives into quarters. Finely slice the red onion, rinsing it under cold water if a milder flavour is preferred. Blanch the alfalfa sprouts for at least 15 seconds in boiling water and allow to cool.

Heat a non-stick frying pan to a high heat and add the bacon bits. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, golden and cooked through. Remove and drain on absorbent kitchen paper.

Combine the beef, hot bacon bits and all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and squeeze over the lemon juice. Toss gently to dress the salad before serving immediately.
