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


While the potato is cooking, heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the diced bacon until just turning golden, 3-4 minutes. Add the slivered almonds and cook, stirring, until 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 potato. Toss to coat and season to taste.


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