Fast & Easy Dinner: White Bean and Chorizo Salad

Fast & Easy Dinner: White Bean and Chorizo Salad

Take a trip to Spain in your kitchen tonight with this crunchy, filling, and flavorful salad.

Canned white beans are combined with spicy chorizo before being tossed with a sherry vinaigrette. Sliced radishes add a refreshing crispness and black olives finish off this interesting dish with a salty tang.

The hard boiled eggs make the salad wonderfully well-balanced. Serve with crusty bread (for mopping the tasty dressing) and a glass of Spanish wine. For the recipe please

2 large eggs
One 15-ounce can small white beans, drained

This was awesome. I made it this evening with Ocotopus and Potatoes with Olives and Chili, Dolmas, and garlic bread with tomato. Husband loved it, and so did I, and the dog wished he had some. I did omit the olives on this, because I don't care for them (and used capers in place of the tapenade in the Epicurious recipe above). It's much better without the lettuce - just a bean salad.

I honestly do not know where you would find already-cooked chorizo. In my neck of the woods, it's sold in 12-oz. packages uncooked.

You had me at the word "chorizo". I love this.

i've never really cooked with white beans too much in the past, maybe just adding it to a soup, but lately my fiance has been, and this is something that sounds right up his alley. i like adding white beans for texture and they are higher in protein than a few things that i eat now, so thank you for sharing this one.
