Put the unsmoked bacon cubes in a non-stick pan and fry gently for a few minutes. Drain off the excess fat and leave to cool.


Meanwhile, put the spelt in a large bowl, add the drained sweetcorn, coarsely chopped walnuts, halved tomatoes, thinly sliced onion and torn-up fresh basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle on the zest of half a lemon.


Add the fried bacon, cover with clingfilm and refrigerate to allow the flavour to
develop for at least an hour before serving.
