Ingredients
  

  • 200 grams chicken livers
  • 4 streaky bacon rashers (strips) roughly chopped
  • 105 g watercress
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dried cranberries unsweetened
  • ½ tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
  • ½ avocado sliced
  • ¼ medium red onion sliced
  • 30 g walnuts
  • salt and pepper to season

Instructions
 

  • Add the cranberries to a small bowl and cover with boiling water to rehydrate. Once they are plump, drain and set aside.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan (skillet) over a medium heat. Add the bacon, cooking until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon then set aside.
  • Prepare the livers by removing any sinew and season with salt and pepper. Heat the pan used to cook the bacon over a medium/high heat. Add the liver and cook until browned all over, adding a little extra oil if required.
  • Add the garlic and rosemary and continue cooking until the garlic is fragrant and the liver is completely cooked through.
  • Whilst the liver is cooking, heat the remaining olive oil in a second pan over a low/medium heat and add the onion. Sweat until tender then add the balsamic and cranberries. Stir well to combine.
  • Add the walnuts to a small dry pan over a low/medium heat and gently toast for 2-3 minutes.
  • Arrange the watercress in a large salad bowl along with the avocado and toss to combine.
  • Add the liver and bacon and spoon over the onion, cranberries and balsamic oil.
  • Top with the toasted walnuts to serve.
