Choose the right chorizo
You need the eating chorizo rather than the cooking variety for this salad. The eating kind is similar in size to salami and you can buy it thinly sliced to order from the deli counter or ready-sliced in packs.
Fresh herbs contain protective plant compounds including essential oils and flavonoids. The oils in basil and mint are anti-microbial, helping reduce the risk of food poisoning, whilst the flavonoids in parsley are anti-inflammatory and protect cells from damage. Herbs, when fresh, are useful sources of vitamins A, C and K as well as iron and potassium.
