I had already decided not to tell the kids that this had the word salad in the title, as far as the angels were concerned we we having spaghetti with chorizo. This was the perfect dish for tonight, fairly light to eat and super quick to prepare and cook, meaning more time to play outside with the princess.

Due to the nice weather dinner was running late, so making a start, I took the outer coating from the chorizo and sliced thinly half of it and chopped the other half. I chopped the tomatoes and ripped up the mozzarella. Chucking each thing into a separate little pot.

I then made the dressing by mixing all three ingredients in a small jug and put to the side.

I chucked the pasta into a pan of boiling after and cooked for about 10/11 minutes, whilst this was cooking away. I fried the chorizo for about 3 minutes until it started to change colour slightly. Using a colander and bowl I separated the chorizo oil and chorizo, I chorizo onto some paper towels.
