Ingredients

Salad

  • 250g Fresh fusilli
  • 2 Salad tomatoes
  • 250g Fresh mozzarella
  • 75g Chorizo
  • 2-3 Handfuls of spinach

Basil Dressing

  • 2 Handfuls of basil
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 150ml Olive oil

Method

  1. Wash the spinach and the tomatoes and chop the tomatoes into slices. Slice the mozzarella into small chunks and fill a pan with water and bring to the boil. Once the water is boiling pour in pasta and cook for 5 minutes until soft.

  2. Slice the chorizo and fry in a pan at a medium heat for 3-5 minutes until brown. Put the pasta, spinach, chorizo, mozzarella and tomatoes into one bowl and mix.

  3. For the basil dressing you need to grab two handfuls of fresh basil leaves and peel the skin off a clove of garlic and chop off the ends. Pour the oil in with the basil and garlic and blend until smooth.

  4. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve chilled. Enjoy!
