Ingredients:

  • 6 Cobs of Corn

  • 1 Chorizo Ring

  • 1 Bunch of Spring Onions

  • 3 Sweet Peppers

  • 1 Gem Lettuce

  • 1 Handful of Whole Almonds

  • 4 Tbsp of Red Wine Vinegar

  • Bunch of Parsley

  • 250g of Saint Agur Blue Cheese

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt

  • Pepper

Method:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.

  2. Place your cobs of corn in a baking dish, cover in olive oil, salt and pepper and bake for 40 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, break apart the chorizo sausage into a non-stick pan and stir until cooked, then remove the chorizo into a bowl and leave aside.

  4. Chop your spring onions into even sized piece and cook in the leftover chorizo fat. Add the chorizo back into the pan and stir in with the onions.

  5. Slice your sweet peppers into rings, and slice the lettuce. Roughly chop the almonds. Remove the corn from the oven and use a knife to slice the corn off the cob. Now, add all of your ingredients into a large bowl. Break your Saint Agur into chunks, finely chop your parsley and cover the bowl in both.

  6. Dressing time. In a jar, mix 6 tablespoons of olive oil with 4 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Shake well with the lid on to ensure the dressing is fully mixed. Drizzle this all over your salad bowl. With tongs, toss the salad, making sure all the ingredients are combined. Dish up with extra Saint Agur and get stuck in.
