      About the Recipe

      Share

      Vibrant flavors, wholesome ingredients, and your special touch – that’s what makes this Chorizo Sausage Salad so special. If you’re looking for a recipe that balances robust and tender, this is the recipe that you need. 😉

      What is the best season to make this salad?

      The Chorizo Sausage Salad works best during spring and summer mainly because there is access to fresh ingredients, such as ripe tomatoes and healthy spinach. It is just what you need to align with the vibrance of the warmer days.

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      This salad is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to nutrition. That is because it boasts of spinach, eggs and chorizo sausage, and that’s not all:

      • Tomatoes – plenty of antioxidants.
      • Spinach – a whole lot of vitamins and iron.
      • Olive oil – healthy fats.
      • Sour cream and French mustard – probiotics.
      • Chorizo sausage and boiled eggs – fillers.
      • Rice noodles – a gluten-free substitution for traditional pasta.

      Wow, right?

      Chorizo Sausage Salad - a powerhouse of nutrition

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      You may find most of the ingredients at a farmer’s market or your local grocery. There is only one ingredient that you may have troubles finding – the chorizo sausage (let me know if it is a problem where you are).

      If it is, you may find chorizo sausage varieties in a butcher shop or a gourmet food store. You don’t need a lot (only one sausage for this particular recipe that serves three), so it shouldn’t hit your wallet hard.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      Absolutely.

      • If you are a vegetarian, swap the chorizo sausage with marinated tofu or plant-based sausage.
      • If you can’t get a hold of the rice noodles, give quinoa or vermicelli a try.
      • You may replace the spring onions with shallots.
      • Finally, use arugula or mixed greens if you are out of spinach.

      Can you make this salad to be a part of a menu?

      This Chorizo Sausage Salad is great on its own. But if you want to make it a part of the menu, you can serve it with the following dishes:

      Which drinks do pair well with this salad?

      Well, my Sparkling Strawberry Melon Sangria will do amazing here. Its fruitiness really matches the freshness of the salad.

      If you want to skip the alcohol, go for anything citrusy – it will enhance the salad’s tanginess.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      The leftovers can be only stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

      I always advise storing the dressing separately from the salad. It will ensure the salad stays crispy when you serve it again. Just toss when you are ready and enjoy the freshness of your chorizo sausage salad.

      Recipe tips & tricks

      1. Dressing is queen. To make sure you get the best flavor out of the dish, focus on getting the dressing right. You will be amazed with how much it matters.
      2. Make sure to cook the chorizo. It really lets those sausage flavors infuse the salad. Yum!
      3. Are you a heat lover? If so, choose your chorizo wisely. There are different types. Some of them are mild and some – hot. Choose the one that you prefer and consider adding a bit of red pepper flakes, too.

      The Chorizo Sausage Salad is all about the perfect blend of flavor, texture and nutrients. Serve it fancy, and you’ll get the star of the show at your dinner. Your guests will love it you. 🙂
