1 head Iceberg lettuce
125g Farmland thin sliced streaky bacon, European style
1 cup assorted cherry tomatoes, halved and quartered
2 tbsp FreshLife pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted
A handful Superb Herb chives, chopped

For Honey Dijon yoghurt dressing
½ cup plain yogurt, unsweetened
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 ½ tbsp honey
3 tbsp DYC apple cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tsp salt
black pepper

Handee paper towel

Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium/high heat. Place slices of bacon in the pan, making sure they are not overlapping. Cook for 6-7 minutes until the bacon is crispy, firm to touch and darker in colour. Transfer the cooked bacon to the paper towel-lined plate and let rest for 5 minutes. When cool enough to handle, crumble the bacon in the paper towel. Set aside.
Prepare the lettuce by removing the outer leaves, then cut into wedges. Cut the end to remove the stem. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
To make the dressing : Place all ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well.
Arrange the lettuce wedges on a large platter, drizzle with the dressing, then load with tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, the bacon crumb and the chives. Enjoy.
