Made double this recipe as part of a birthday buffet with lots of other tasty salads. Everyone thought it was delicious and I agreed! None left at the end of the evening. I will definitely make this again - a nice one to add to the repertoire.

For a vege version (apart from leaving out the meat) marinate a few whole cloves of garlic in a liquor of EV olive oil and red wine vinegar for ca. 2 hours beforehand, then add to the rest as you're preparing it. Never use garlic without either cooking or marinating it.

I like a small amount of fresh rosemary in this type of salad, but I'm lucky enough to have a rosemary bush. Don't use dried herbs in a salad.

I think there was far to much red onion in this, so I just used half a small red onion and also added two gloves of crushed garlic. I used black eyed beans as didn't realise that I didn't have any cannellini beans. We really enjoyed it - anything with chorizo gets my vote!

I made this as part of a Tapas menu.
Wow, all in all it gives a delicious flavoursome punch!
I used both Chorizo and peppered Salami.
Will def make again!
A lovely little dish.

Message for Kermie!! Re the lack of garlic in the list of ingredients, it puzzled me for a moment too, but then it dawned on me that the garlic element must come from the chorizo!! I suspect it's probably dawned on you too by now.

Haven't tried it yet, but fully intend to very soon - looks scummy!

How does this dish become garlicky with no garlic in the ingerdients list.

A little more seasoning would be great and perhaps some more beans but otherwise this was very tasty and quick to prepare too! Fab!
