Directions:

1 Preheat the oven to 250 ° Celsius.

2 Wash salad and put it into the bowl.

3 Dice cucumber, tomatoes, onions and bacon.

4 Add the cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, coconuts and walnuts.

5 (See picture above) Add bacon into a pan, to make it crispy I used the natural fat of the bacon instead of oil or butter. Then to make the bacon taste insanely awesome pour two table spoons of pumpkin seed oil over the bacon.
Let the bacon roast in the oven for approximately twenty minutes.

6 Add everything together and enjoy!
