The secret to this bold and robust Spanish-inspired salad is its strong contrast of flavours and textures, with spicy chorizo, rich Manchego cheese, crunchy croutons, fresh pear and juicy raisins. Finished with a sweet sherry vinegar dressing, this easy salad can be ready in just 15 minutes and makes a wonderful addition to any summer spread.
- In a frying pan set over a high heat, dry-fry the chorizo until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside. In a bowl, mix the dressing ingredients and season.
- Put the sliced pear, salad leaves, spinach, toasted sourdough, Manchego, tomatoes and chorizo in a large bowl. Drizzle with the dressing and toss to mix. Divide between six bowls and sprinkle over the almonds and raisins or sultanas to serve.
Tip: Make the salad and dressing in the morning. Cover, chill, then mix together just before serving.
