Nice rich flavours. I have this for my lunch sometimes for a nice change. Healthy too!

I love this dish, very nice flavours and a great way to have tomatoes. Great served along a lovely crisp green salad and chunky bread to soak up the juices. Yum.

We almost lived on this through the summer, tomatoes from greenhouse, served with crispy ciabata and dry white wine

Great salad. Only used half the olive oil and ate it as a cold salad in my lunchbox. Lovely.

This was a really lovely salad! In response to Abigall!, i served this salad with parmesan crusted chicken (another recipe from this site)

I have previously made this, slightly differently, by frying chorizo and cherry toms and then taking off the heat and adding cubed watermelon. Serve on toasted rustic bread rubbed with garlic and then drizzle balsamic or PX sherry vinegar over it.

Surprisingly tasty and had a nice summery feel about it.

I loved this, I swapped the sherry vinegar for balsamic as I couldnt see the recipe at home and had to try and guess/remember what it was I had read earlier. Was delicious though. Definately to be repeated.

Absolutely delicious! Even my daughter who is not normally a chorizo fan loved it. I served the salad on a bed of rocket alongside grilled fish - yum yum.

Chorizo is a mildly spiced Spanish sausage, sold on most deli counters.
