Mediterranean Spanish Salad with Red Grapes and Spanish Sausage

  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

4 Servings

Punctuated with smoky paprika, white wine and smoked pimento peppers, Spanish sausage is deep red and can range in spiciness. Juicy red grapes, crunchy celery and a splash of citrus balance out the spicy sausage in this patio-friendly, sharable summertime salad.

ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounce) DOLE Mediterranean Blend, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup cooked Spanish chorizo sausage, thinly sliced or substitute with 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Mediterranean preserved lemon, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Juice from 1 small lemon, (about 2 tablespoons)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • Country bread (optional)

directions

In a large bowl, toss all ingredients together. Transfer to shallow bowls or plates and serve with country bread if desired.

Family Friendly Suggestion:

Serving kids or less adventurous eaters? Tone down the spicy Spanish sausage with milder chicken sausage or a cup of cooked beef seasoned simply with salt and pepper. Not a fan of quinoa or in a hurry? Substitute a cup of pre-cooked and cooled, instant rice for a familiar, easy-to-prep grain. If preserved lemon is hard to find, brighten up the dish with a couple of teaspoons of grated fresh lemon peel instead.
