chorizo, tomato and red onion salad

I live in an area with a strong Portuguese influence so I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate chorizo into my cooking. This is a great backyard party recipe because it’s great served at room temperature. For a little variety, try adding in grilled potatoes to this salad as well. Simply bake one small Yukon gold potato, then cut into thick slices when cooled. Brush each slice with olive oil, season with salt and black pepper and grill along with chorizo, until nicely charred.

1 chorizo link, cut lengthwise in half
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, larger ones cut in half
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium heat. Cook chorizo, cut-side down, for 5-7 minutes until nicely charred. Turn and cook on other side for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes and red onion. When chorizo is cooled to room temperature, slice into 2-inch pieces and add to bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle vinegar and olive oil over salad and gently toss to combine. Serve at room temperature.

Serves 1.
