A tasty salad that's super quick to make - packed with creamy avocado, peppery rocket and smoky bacon, and topped with a delicious fruity dressing.

Heat a nonstick frying pan over a high heat and cook the bacon for 2 minutes on each side, until crisp. Set aside to cool completely.

Meanwhile, make the dressing. Put the blueberries, oil, vinegar, mustard and honey into the bowl of a food processor (or use a stick blender) and whizz to combine. Season well.

In a serving bowl, toss together the rocket, avocado and blueberries, then crumble over the bacon and drizzle with the blueberry dressing.
