In an attempt to cure the inevitable end-of-holiday-blues and wind down Mr. Sprinkle's and my own excessive food and drink consumption, I just put together a simple chorizo & potato salad which I served with a green salad.
It took about 30 minutes to prepare both salads. I made four portions of the potato & chorizo salad allowing us to bring in lunch to work tomorrow (I am desperately trying to minimise the trauma of my alarm tomorrow morning by getting back into the swing of normality).
Chorizo & potato salad for 4 friends:
1 kg of new small potatoes
3 sliced cooking chorizos (I used Brindisa)
1 diced red onion
chopped fresh dill
salt & peper
1. Wash, peel, (if you like) and boil the potatoes.
2. Meanwhile fry the red onion in a bit of olive oil. Add the chorizo once they've turned light brown. Fry for another couple of minutes until the chorizo is done.
3. Once the potatoes are boiled, chop them into bite-size pieces. Place them in a bowl and pour the chorizo, onion and olive oil from the pan over them. Mix it around and add some salt & pepper before sprinkling the fresh dill on top.
I served the dish with a salad made from romaine leaves, tomatoes, red pepper, feta cheese, pumpkin & sunflower seeds, dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Have an excellent week!
