Place bacon rashers under a hot preheated grill and cook for 2-3 minutes each side until crispy. When cooled, slightly cut rashers into 3. Lightly cook green beans in boiling water until just tender, leave to cool a little.

In a large bowl place the bacon pieces, green beans, drained mixed beans, lentils, fresh herbs and cheese, toss together well.

Place ingredients for dressing in a jar with a lid and shake well to mix together.

Drizzle dressing over salad and serve.
