Rice is a versatile, inexpensive ingredient. Its soft texture and mild taste work well with many salad greens and vegetables. You can use any kind of rice for this salad.
Chorizo, a Spanish sausage made from coarsely chopped fatty pork seasoned with smoked paprika, may be used in this recipe. Fry slices until crisp over high heat and drain off fat before using.
Altered ingredient amounts. This is a great substantial salad. We used half the salami (as it was all we had in the fridge) but found this to be plenty. Makes the salad slightly healthier and cheaper! - 14 Oct 2009
