This is so amazing in it’s perfect simplicity. I immediately mailed the link to all my cooking friends. I am going to try this with crispy fired chorizo to make it warm for the winter. I love the freshness of this dish. Brilliant! 🙂

Hi Chris, I went to sleep on Monday night thinking that I should have added in there to add chorizo for a meatier dish, so you read my mind, and hope you enjoy it 🙂
