Spanish Chorizo Potato Salad

If you want to try something different, make this asap.  It is fabulous.  This is another dish I made when my daughter was home and everyone loved it.  Slice an onion and place it in a bowl with about 3-4 tablespoons of capers with a bit of their juice.

Boil some new potatoes just until they are fork tender.  Saute' some chorizo in a pan until it is cooked through and given off it's red oil.  Immediately pour the chorizo over the potatoes and mix it until they soak up the oil and cover all the potatoes.  Mix this into the capers and onions, along with 2 T. white wine vinegar, some olive oil and S&P.  Sprinkle with sliced green onions.  We ate it warm but it is good at room temperature too.  This in my new favorite potato salad.

I served it with soft boiled eggs sprinkled with paprika and some sausages cooked with rosemary.


The flavor is incredible.


I made this cheesy, garlic pizza to go along with it.  The recipe will be posted soon!

Pizza as a side dish with pasta? Brilliant idea! And I LOVE chorizo, pasta and sausages as a mix, so this dish is brilliant! Sadly I have a more ascetic diet now.

OH WOW!!! Look at that pizza! I can almost smell it!!! -sigh-

Re: You question in my comments, on this blog entry... Not sure of the make. But it's a beautiful soup tourine, given us by one of our daughter's in law, years ago. I love how it looks, as a center piece. :-)

I've been making this chorizo casserole type thing. Chorizo cooked with onions and mushrooms, mixed with egg noodles, yogurt, and cilantro.

Pretty darn good meal.
