Chorizo and Tomato Salad

I first had this dish many years ago in a small Tapas bar in Seville and they were kind enough to give me the recipe, it's a dish I have quite often when its hot,I love the hot chorizo and the cold Tomato with those lovely fragrant chorizo Oils.

You need very fresh and very flavoursome Tomatoes, slice them up in any shapes you like,put them in a bowl add a sprinkling of rock salt and a little black pepper.

Add a tablespoon of Sherry vinegar a small glug of your very best Spanish extra virgin Olive Oil, add some very finely slices of fresh Spring Onion, and put in the fridge for around half an hour

In a frying pan add a little light olive oil, get the heat high,then add sliced Picante(the Spicy one) Chorizo,turn the heat down to medium, and cook two minutes either side.

Put your tomato salad on a plate add put the hot Choritzo on top with a spoon or two of the choritzo oil, sprinkle from a height some freshly chopped Parsley,and enjoy.I promise you will have this again and again perfect with ice cold Manzanilla


  1. Your salad looks delicious - refreshing, cool, and spicy all at the same time.
