  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the sausages and potatoes in a roasting tin with the oil. Roast for 30 mins, then mix the mustard and honey together and stir into the tin. Roast for 10 mins more until sticky and cooked.

  2. Meanwhile, mix together the dressing ingredients with some seasoning – the onion will soften slightly in the vinegar.

  3. When the sausages are ready, thickly slice them, then mix back in with the potatoes. Tip the spinach onto plates, pile the sticky sausage slices and potatoes on top, then spoon over the dressing.

Simple and delicious. Followed the recipe to the letter (omitting the red onion and dressing), and the result was gorgeous.

I used some really nice pork and red wine sausages for this, and didn't bother with the onion dressing as there were loads of cooking juices which were lovely over top of the salad. My kids loved it too.

This was delicious! I added 2 apples cored and cut into 8 after 20 minutes and let them stew down slightly with the sausages and potatoes which worked extremely well. I also doubled the glaze which meant a nice drizzle over the salad too.

We love this in our house. I start the sausages first and add the potato (have also used butternut squash) after 15 minutes. I also add the onion, thickly sliced for 10 minutes before adding the mustard and honey. I don't bother with the dressing as there are enough juices and stickiness to put on the salad.

Delicious! We've had this about 3-4 times now. I love how sweet it is!

Such an easy dish to prepare and so cheap to buy ingredients. Definitely one of my 'go-to' meals.

good and husband asked - 'can we have it again soon?' surprised how nice the dressing tasted, I have chopped onions rather than sliced - I was nice and soft!
