Lentil and Chorizo Salad

Lentil and chorizo salad

I know of at least one carnivore, not omnivore, but carnivore that just cannot abide vegetables with the exception of potatoes. And it is with this person in mind that I made this dish, a way for her to not even notice that there are dreaded legumes sharing the plate with her beloved sausages.

I used of course, the fabulous sausages that I got from Eumundi Smokehouse which are so flavoursome you only need 2/3 a sausage for this whole dish. This dish also has the advantage of being really easy to make, and can be done in a frantic 5 minutes or a leisurely 10 minutes with most of the pain being in the fairly insignificant amount of chopping.
