Warm Chorizo and Goat's Cheese Salad

Warm Chorizo and Goat's Cheese Salad

With the International Cheese Awards taking place this week in Nantwich in Cheshire, here is a lovely cheese based recipe from Gary Rhodes.

A British cheese won last year, let’s hope we can do it again this year!!

Gary’s Warm Chorizo and Goat’s Cheese Salad with Rasberry Vinaigrette:

For the Salad

100g-200g (4-7oz) mixed or single variety salad leaves
2-3 spring onions, thinly sliced
225g (8oz) British hard goat’s cheese, broken into chunks
300g (10oz) chorizo sausage, peeled and cut into 1cm (1/2 inch) thick slices 

Method

Simply whisk together 4 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar, a pinch of caster sugar and ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

Mix together the salad leaves and spring onions and gently toss with the goat’s cheese.

Heat a large frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Fry the chorizo, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes. Spoon the sausage into the salad, whisk any fat released into the vinaigrette and drizzle over the leaves
