    Hubby rates this an 8. I wasn't able to find good chorizo so I used the melt-a-way kind and added a couple of chicken sausages for texture. It was filling and tasty. Would probably make again with different sausage or better chorizo.

    Delicious! We all really liked this salad... the chorizo added a nice kick that made it a more substantial side!

    This is a wonderful simple salad, perfect for summer! To dress it up a bit, try grilling your sausage, adding some grilled corn, or topping with some French-fried onions!

    I made this as the main dish. The chorizo was just too spicy for us. My husband liked it, though, and just said we needed to drink milk with it.

    @Anonymous- This really is a fantastic salad! Try making it again and use a different sausage. Some Italian sausage, chicken sausage, or even bacon would go nicely.
