Method

 
This is a very fine combination and a delicate blend of ingredients. Do not soak sun-dried tomatoes in oil before using in salads and snacks as a tart tomato flavour is required. 1. Remove hard core from each spinach leaf, stack a few leaves and roll up tightly from stem to tip. Using a sharp kitchen knife, cut into fine chiffonade. Repeat with remaining leaves. If limp, place in fridge in a bowl of ice water to crisp. 2. Slice mozzarella balls finely. Fry or grill bacon until crispy. Slice into fine strips; set aside. 3. Using a pair of kitchen scissors, snip the sun-dried tomatoes into fine strips. Set aside. Peel and slice onions finely. 4. Make up the dressing by placing all ingredients, except the oil, in a blender and whiz until well combined. Add oil gradually, with the motor running, until blended. Pour into glass bottle. 5. To assemble salad: Layer drained spinach chiffonade with bits of bacon, onion rings and sun-dried tomatoes. Place a few mozzarella slices on the side. Finish off with more bacon, onion rings and sun-dried tomatoes. Serve dressing separately with slices of toasted baguette.
