I was thrilled with the flavour of my Turkish dried apricots stuffed with apricots and wrapped in bacon recipe I did a couple of weeks back and played around using these ingredients in simple salad.
I cut the soft and semi dried Turkish apricots into strips. I chopped up a couple of rashers of dry cured and smoked streaky bacon (about 2 slices per portion) and pan fried them until crispy. I removed them from the pan and added the apricot slices to the pan and quickly fried until they just started to blister. It is not totally necessary to do this, you could just leave use them as is, but I wanted to warm and soften them slightly, and allow them to absorb the delicious bacon fat.
Scatter the apricots and bacon over a bed of leaves of your preference and add small chunks of goats cheese. Drizzle over a vinaigrette dressing.
