We love potato salads, and we love thick slices of spicy chorizo, the oily, orange Spanish sausage. All that is needed is some bitter salad leaves and a good, sharp dressing, to make what is for us, the perfect salad. Top with halves of softly oozing boiled eggs and you have an intensely flavourful and satisfying lunch or supper dish.

Dressing

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon fennel seeds, lightly roasted and crushed
1 tablespoon coriander seeds, lightly roasted and crushed
4 shallots, finely diced
1 teaspoon white peppercorns, crushed
1 tablespoon thyme leaves
12 strands saffron
a drizzle honey
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
80ml extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 large, mild red chillies, seeded, scraped and roughly chopped

Salad

Quantity Ingredient
300g waxy potatoes
100g cooked chickpeas
2 tablespoons olive oil
160g semi-dried chorizo sausages, sliced thickly
100g frisee lettuce
1 cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped
2 medium-soft boiled eggs, peeled and halved

Method

  1. To make the dressing, put all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and allow them to infuse for at least an hour.
  2. To make the salad, peel and boil the potatoes until they are tender. Dice. Put the chickpeas in a pan of water and bring to the boil so they warm through. Drain well, and mix with the potatoes. While they are still warm, pour over the dressing and stir gently.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the chorizo for a minute on each side to warm through. Add the chorizo and the oil from the pan, the lettuce and coriander to the potatoes and chickpeas and mix together well. Serve the salad topped with the egg halves.
