Method

  1. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Fry the ciabatta for 8-10 minutes, tossing occasionally, until starting to crisp and brown, then tip into a large salad bowl.
  2. Lay the chorizo in the pan and dry-fry for 2 minutes until it gives out a red oil. Toss in the tomatoes and cook over a high heat for 1-2 minutes until they start to soften. Drizzle over the vinegar, add the sugar and season well.
  3. MIX TOGETHER Gently toss the avocado, salad and remaining olive oil with the croutons. Spoon over the chorizo and tomatoes and drizzle with any pan juices. Serve immediately.

This salad is great. Easy to do, amazing to eat. Don't even consider if you should do it or not. Just do it!

Absolutely gorgeous. I used small cubes of chorizo which are more bite-sized than slices. Will be making this again very soon.

Dont eat bread, made a full salad and covered with chorizo and bacon pieces fried off with the chorizo - very tasty!

Fantastic taste and so easy to make. I fried my ciabatta croutons after the chorizo in the fat that was left in the pan, which gave them more flavour and a cheerful colour. I also added a red pepper for crunch and another ingredient which I use often these days in salads; raw (yes raw), finally diced courgette!

Okay, admittedly I was only cooking for 1, but this only took 15 minutes! I threw the ciabatta and chorizo in together to fry. The bread soaked up loads of flavour from the chorizo but left me with no "pan juices". I got around that by adding a good splash of wine to the pan and finished cooking the tomatoes in that, so I had something to pour over the salad. Result? A seriously fast dish that was really tasty!

A family favourite. Great success as a dinner party starter. I often add some roasted pine nuts to this salad.
