Boil a kettle of water. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 2cm chunks. Place the potato in large saucepan, cover with boiling water and simmer over a high heat until easily pierced with a knife, 10-12 minutes. Drain, return to the saucepan, toss with the crumbled chicken stock and set aside to cool.


While the potato is boiling, in a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the diced bacon and cook until just turning golden, 3-4 minutes. Add the slivered almonds to the frying pan and cook, stirring, until the almonds and bacon are golden, 1-2 minutes. Set aside to cool.


While the bacon is cooking, halve the cherry tomatoes. Add the bacon, almonds and basil pesto to the saucepan, toss to coat and season to taste.


Divide the bacon and pesto potato salad between two reusable containers and set aside to cool. When cool, top with the cherry tomatoes, spinach & rocket mix and shaved Parmesan cheese and refrigerate. At lunchtime, toss the salad to combine.
