Warm chorizo, avocado and feta salad

Welcome to Van Wyngaardt’s recipe recommendation series. Today, we’re going to show you how to make a low carbohydrate tasty, warm chorizo, avocado and feta salad filled with protein and a good type of fat.

There’s no doubt winter is here, and although it may be healthy, a cold salad isn’t as appealing as a hearty, wholesome, warm counterpart packed with different flavour profiles. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of fat listed below; the majority comes from the avocado, which contains healthy fat and minerals, including 

  • Folate
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
  • Vitamin B6) (Pyridoxine)

You expect an aromatic smoky flavour from the chorizo sausage. It packs a tremendous crisp ‘bite’. A sure-fire winter warmer!
