If you do not use all of the chorizo-flavoured oil on the salad, keep it covered in the fridge and use it for frying cooked potatoes or roasting vegetables at a later time. The chilled oil will keep perfectly chilled for several weeks.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, hard boiled for 9-10 minutes, cooled and shells removed
  • 50g chorizo, casing removed and thinly sliced
  • 4 tblsp olive oil
  • 4 handfuls of rocket leaves or mixed salad leaves, washed and dried
  • Olive oil
  • 2-4 teaspoons harissa
  • 1 -2 tablespoons mayonnaise

Method

  1. Before assembling the salad, heat the chorizo very gently in the olive oil. Do not allow the oil to boil as this will toughen the chorizo. The chorizo can rest in the oil for 30 minutes.
  2. Scatter the leaves onto a large serving platter.
  3. Cut the peeled hard boiled eggs in half lengthways and place among the leaves. Now place the chorizo slices on the leaves in between the eggs.
  4. Drizzle a little mayonnaise onto the eggs and then do the same with the mayonnaise.
  5. Finally drizzle on some of the chorizo flavoured oil and serve immediately.
