Butternut Squash and Chorizo Salad

With chunky butternut squash and chorizo pieces this is one of the meatiest and filling salads you will ever have. A perfect combination of different textures and flavours from the sweet soft creamy nutty squash, meaty spicy savoury chorizo, fresh crisp spinach, tangy juicy sweet cherry tomatoes down to the sweet sour smoky maple dressing this salad has everything to offer.


This is one of my favourite salads, it’s a complete meal on its own and it does not lack on any flavour. How about you what is your favourite salad?

    Well this looks good! I make something similar with butternut and Mexican chorizo, but have never thought of using Spanich chorizo. Great salad!
