Warm Chickpea and Chorizo Salad

Welcome to one of my most favourite dishes in the WORLD. I first discovered this dish while living in Darwin, a vibrant city in the Top End of Australia (well worth a visit) . It is the creation of the chef from Moorish Cafe, a  fantastic restaurant favorited by locals and tourists alike. It is no longer on the menu so you will have to suffice with making it yourself.  However, if you are ever in Darwin, as any local would say,  a visit to Moorish is a must. Don't forget to order a Strawberry Caipriosca to get you started!

I just love the volume of fresh herbs used in this dish.  This recipe is super easy and oh so amazing. A winner at any dinner party or BBQ and you will look like a super fancy cook!

Warm Chickpea and Chorizo Salad
