So they call me Jam Jar Gill...

I discovered this dish whilst working at the Picturedrome in Northampton when I was a student at the University of Northampton. It was a fascinating place to work as it wasn’t just a bar but a local community entertainment venue and you had DJs some night, Movie nights, comedy nights and a huge variety of local music acts too – It is still now one of my favourite places to go and on top of that the food was amazing and lovingly created by Shirin – an amazing chef of Iranian heritage who made so so many delicious dishes. This is one of hers.

For the salad the ingredients are:


Salad leaves, mushrooms, bacon and potatoes.


For the dressing:


Simply par boil the potatoes:


 …then drain


…and fry up with the mushroom and bacon until nicely toasted:


then mix up the salad dressing ingredients:


…mix with salad leaves and pour over the dressing and then toss well:


… and that’s it – delicious simple salad, made with everyday ingredients – enjoy!
