Very good salad...though I was not crazy about the dressing, but it grows on you as you eat the salad. The dressing is very tangy due to the cider vinegar, but it does blend well with the apples and other ingredients. I had to use Envy apples as I didn't have the others. I think the toasted pecans really added alot to this salad, but then I love pecans. DH and I really enjoyed this. Made for ZWT8 - Spain/Portugal, and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.

I've really enjoyed the ZWT8 visit to Spain. The discovery has enlivened my summer salads with unique ingredient combinations & flavors. Pairing sausage, apples, & spinach here was different and flavorful. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

This is a yummy salad. I never would have thought to combine chorizo and apples but it works! Made for Newest Zaar tag.
