This is the perfect lunch or light dinner. Serve the salad with only a dinner roll or two and the Chorizo Egg and Bean Salad is a very filling meal.

Most of the ingredients can be prepped in advance and tossed together just before serving.

We have practically lived on salads this Summer as we had fairly high temperatures in South-Africa, especially during January.

I can feel Autumn closing in, slowly but surely, the mornings are crisper with a tiny bite and the evenings are also cooler.

Have to be honest, I am actually looking forward to Winter this year.  But, as is my nature, of course after the first week of real cold, I will complain about that again, wishing for Spring to arrive.

Anyhow, with the cooler temperatures – nowhere close to chilly or cold though – I am upping our salads, making them a little richer and more filling.

The Chorizo Egg and Bean Salad has so much more going on ! I could really have called it the All-In-One-Salad, but now that just seems like a silly name !

Roast your own Bell Peppers

You can roast the Bell Peppers whole, place in a plastic bag to sweat, and then easily remove the skin if you would rather prefer doing it that way.

I have lots of small bags of frozen chopped Bell Peppers and normally use them in stir-fries. But to remove the skin from small pieces of Bell Peppers is not my kind of fun, therefore I left the skin on.

This looks so good. Can't wait to try. If I want to make it for a potluck, should I wait to add the croutons till the serving time? Pinning to my "salads" board. Found you via Marvelous Monday:)
