Quick Chorizo Salad

Sometimes you need something rapid to fill the gap after work.  Sometimes, you need something tasty but cannot honestly be fussed with much preparation.  This is where I almost always chop up some chorizo.

This is a lovely warm meets cold salad of chorizo, full of vegetables and flavour, definitely a super fast winner dinner!

Chorizo Salad - Serves 1


60g, 2oz Chorizo
Two big handfuls of rocket (arugula)
Half a red pepper, chopped
1 large, ripe tomato, chopped
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp red wine vinegar


Cut the chorizo into small pieces and put in a non stick pan over a medium to high heat, add in the chopped pepper and paprika and fry until the chorizo is browning, stirring regularly.

In the meantime, prepare the rocket and tomato on a plate.

When the chorizo mix is ready, take off the heat and top the salad leaves.  Quickly deglaze the pan with the vinegar (pour in and scrape up any oils left behind) and pour over the salad.  The dressing needs no oil as the chorizo is quite oily.

Serve and enjoy.  10 mins work max, but bags of taste!
