Happy Birthday, Isabel!

What can you get someone on her birthday who does so much for us all year?
How about a virtual birthday party!
Isabel, thank you all you do for us! I thought I’d bring something to the party that you inspired me to try. Chorizo.
I admit I has no idea what I was buying. Fortunately for me, our local Farmer’s Market has a butcher shop that gladly ordered a piece for me. Guess what?
I love it!
This cured version is perfectly seasoned. Flavorful with just the right amount of spices.
Now what to do with it? Hmm…what pairs well with Chorizo, Isabel?

Eggs of course!

So in honor of your birthday I made this egg salad with bits of Chorizo, veggies and chives from my garden. I hope you enjoy it!
