Warm Potato & Chorizo Salad

The perfect dish for all seasons. Great for a summer’s day while perfectly warming for a cold winter’s evening. This Spanish inspired warm salad is very simple to put together and when the tart dressing soaks into the potatoes it’s a really delicious combination of flavours. It’s a dish that looks more complex than it really is, which is a bonus if you like a bit of adoration but are a little bit lazy.

INGREDIENTS:
500g potatoes (cut into even chunks)
1 red capsicum (cut into small slices or chunks)
1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 chorizo sausage (thinly sliced)
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley (chopped)
1 garlic clove
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
salt & pepper

DIRECTIONS:
Boil the potatoes for 10-20 minutes until tender. Drain and cover.

Crush the garlic clove with a little salt into a paste. Whisk in the olive oil, vinegar and a little pepper and set aside. In a small dry frying pan, fry the chorizo for 2-3 minutes until just crispy. Add to a large bowl then add the capsicum, onion, parsley and potatoes. Drizzle over the dressing and lightly toss together. Serve immediately or leave to come to room temperature.

SERVING:
Perfect just on its own, but great to accompany fish or poultry.
