    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 400g pack good quality sausages
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 heaped tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 16 cherry tomato
  • 2 Little Gem lettuce
  • 1 large avocado



    Although it's technically a fruit, the mild-flavoured avocado is used as a vegetable. Native…

  • ¼ cucumber
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • crusty bread, to serve


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or deep frying pan. Using scissors, snip the sausages into quarters straight into the pan. Throw in the onion, and fry for a minute or two, stirring every now and then to brown everything. Spoon in the mustard and sugar, tip in the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes more, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are just beginning to split and the mixture is coated in the sweet mustard glaze.

  2. Meanwhile, separate the lettuces into leaves, peel, stone and slice the avocado and halve and slice the cucumber. Mix them together and pile onto a platter. Spoon the hot sausage mixture on top. Add the vinegar and 1 tbsp water to the pan and stir it over the heat to dislodge all those tasty flavourings from the pan. Spoon the pan juices over the salad and serve with crusty bread.

Absolutely love this salad, have made quite af ew times now and used quorn sausages and it's lovely. The flavours are really tasty although we add extra mustard to give it more kick. Served with houmous and crusty bread, delicious!

Made this for a family meal - quick and easy idea, not much of a kick though which we all felt it needed. The second time I made it I added a bit more mustard and less sugar and it seemed to increase the flavour. Great for kids too.

Made this today, half read the recipe and went from there, didn't use the red wine vinegar, and my avocado isn't ripe yet!

Also went for a selection of different salad leaves, with balsamic vinegar, which went well with the sweetness of the mustard/sugar dressing.

It is easy to make and tastes very nice. Only one thing I am not sure is the '2 Little Gem lettuces' - I used 2 little gem lettuces, but there was a mountain of lettues leavies pile under the sausage mixing!

Quick and tasty, great for mid week. Although I would leave out the sugar next time.

A great standby - the green salad ingredients can really be altered as you see fit.

I was looking for a way of using up sausages left over from a barbecue on a hot summer's day - and this was just perfect. Really liked it!
