The best part of this recipe, you can substitute the pancetta with any other protein of your choice. Whether it’s grilled chicken, crispy bacon, or even marinated tofu, the possibilities are endless to suit your dietary preferences or cravings. For the traditionalist, swap the pancetta with tuna to create a truly classic version of this salad!
Bringing all the flavours together, is the tangy Dijon mustard dressing. With a simple blend of Dijon mustard, garlic, apple cider, and extra virgin olive oil, this dressing adds a zesty touch.Print
