Warm Spinach & Spicy Chorizo Salad
with Blistered Tomatoes and Feta-Crusted Corn on the Cob
Chorizo, a spicy Spanish and Latin-American sausage variety, brings intense flavor and heat to this unconventional salad. Hot chorizo slices are tossed with tender spinach to gently wilt the greens. Served alongside feta-dusted corn on the cob (called elote, in Spanish), this dish will introduce you to new ingredients and new cuisines.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Halve the tomatoes and lime. Chop the cilantro.
Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Place the ear of corn and chorizo on separate sides of the pan and cook, rotating occasionally, until the corn is charred on the outside and chorizo is browned. Remove corn from the pan, then add ½ cup water to the pan to steam the chorizo until cooked through. Set the chorizo aside with the corn and cover to keep warm.
Make the chipotle mayonnaise: in a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons mayonnaise with as much chipotle powder as you like. Season with salt.
Make the wilted spinach salad: heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in the same pan over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes to the pan and cook, tossing, 2-3 minutes, until slightly softened. Remove pan from heat, then stir in the spinach to wilt slightly. Season with salt and pepper, then finish the spinach with a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of olive oil.
Brush each corn cob with 1 tablespoon chipotle mayo, then press the feta into the corn to adhere. Thinly slice the chorizo.
Plate the wilted spinach salad and top with the chorizo. Serve the corn to the side, sprinkled with cilantro. Enjoy!
