Chorizo & Bean Salad

Carole's Chatter: Chorizo & Bean Salad

I needed a lunch and spotted a chorizo in the fridge which my better half had procured.  So I made up a salad with it.


Chorizo sausage
1 small onion
1 can of mixed beans (cannellini, lima, pinto & kidney)
Red capsicum (bell pepper)
½ tomato
Lemon juice
White wine
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoons of passata


Slice your chorizo and dice your onion – fry this off in a pan – no oil necessary – what you need will ocme out of the sausage.

I didn't realize for quite a while that each end of the chorizo had a metal clip – that would have made a nasty surprise for anyone biting into it!

Add your sliced bell peppers into the pan.

Drain and rinse your beans.

Pop the beans and the diced tomato into a salad bowl. 

When the bell pepper is lightly cooked finish off the pan with the passata, a splosh of white wine and a squirt of lemon juice.  Pour the lot over the top of the beans nad mix through.

Serve while the chorizo is still warm.  A nice change up for a lunch.  Sprinkle a few freshly chopped herbs on top for a pop of green.


  1. Yes, important to cut those ends off! This looks easy and filling.

  2. A zippy tasting salad, quick and easy. Aloha,

  3. Sounds tasty!! Love sausage with veggies.

  4. I can't get my husband to like chorizo, so I only have it when eating out! Now that you mention, though, I could make this salad for myself and have two work lunches ready to go.

  5. I would hate to get the metal clip! That's a fine looking salad.

  6. quick, easy, tasty-- just the way I like it. always looking for a little variety for lunch
