Looking for a spring salad recipe that’ll please the whole family? This warm salad of cooked chorizo and mushrooms with caramelised sweet potato is the one for you. The ingredients are perfectly balanced with a spicy lemon and olive oil dressing, delicately flavoured with parsley, paprika, garlic and crushed chillies.

We love whipping up this spring salad when we’ve got roasted vegetables and other leftovers to use up. The key to this recipe is the balance of sweet to spicy, so all you have to do is make sure you match a caramelised vegetable to that chorizo and spicy dressing.
