Method

1
Wash and roughly chop the Romaine hearts. Wrap in a clean tea towel and pop back in the fridge to keep fresh and crunchy.

In a nonstick frying pan, gently fry the bacon in 1tsp of the oil for 5 mins over a medium-low heat. Add the cubes of bread, then fry for 10-15 mins, until both the bacon and the croutons are crispy. Transfer to a dish lined with kitchen roll and allow to drain and cool.
3
Meanwhile, for the dressing, stir together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and remaining oil until well combined. Season generously with black pepper.
4
Microwave the sweetcorn, according to the pack instructions. Rinse with cold water to cool.
5
To assemble the salad, put the lettuce, sliced tomatoes and sweetcorn in a large serving bowl. Top with the bacon and croutons, then drizzle over the creamy dressing and sprinkle with more pepper. Toss together, then serve the salad garnished with the basil.
