Easy Spinach Salad
This salad as a meal recipe is so easy to make and prep time is literally minutes! I have made variations of this recipe switching the chorizo with bacon, ham, or whatever protein I may have on hand.
The over easy egg yolks along with the balsamic drizzle acts as a delicious low carb dressing that is simple yet flavourful. A healthy quick meal when you're pressed for time.
EASY SPINACH SALAD
2 cups fresh spinach
2 tbsp olive oil
40 g spicy chorizo sausage, diced
2 medium eggs
salt & pepper
2 tsp aged balsamic vinegar
Prepare spinach by washing and drying using a salad spinner. Place in large, shallow serving bowl.
In a small skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil on medium. Add diced chorizo and sauté until browned.
Remove chorizo and set aside.
Add remaining olive oil. Carefully crack each egg individually into the skillet taking care not to damage the yolk. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Once the egg white edges solidify (around 45 seconds), use a flat spatula to carefully flip the eggs over gently. Wait 10 seconds and using the spatula, carefully remove the eggs from the skillet and flip right side up on top of spinach.
Top with chorizo and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
Serve & enjoy!
