    Nif's Note:

    This pretty unusual dish comes from the Hurdes region in Extremadura, Spain. It was originally served to fieldworkers at midday to gather strength through the vitamins and proteins. If you don´t like the taste of pure lemon in your mouth, squeeze the lemons and just use the juice. Enjoy!

      Before you eat, you can cut up everything in the bowl, so that the yolk mixes with the citric juice to make up the dressing.

      We really really enjoyed this salad. I made as written, but my garlic was bad so I sprinkled just a bit of garlic powder over the salad before adding the eggs. I drizzled a bit of olive oil over top and skipped the red wine. What a great combination of flavor sensations and textures. The spicy chorizo, tart lemon, sweet orange and neutral flavor of the eggs really worked for us. DH liked it for (one) of his post-workout meals. Will definitely make this again - so quick and easy and really very satisfying. So glad I tried this recipe. Made for ZWT8 - Spain/Portugal and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.

      I was a little nervous about the ingredients and how well they would work together but they worked really well together. I only made one serving and did leave out the lemon. This would be really good with a nice piece of crusty bread. Great recipe! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT5.

      This is a sleeper salad! I cannot convey how exotic and sexy this salad is; it has sweet, sour, and spicy. My photo doesn't show it chopped up just before eating; it doesn't show the citrus layer beneath. When picky DH tried this, he said we need to include it on our guest brunch rotation! That's a lot coming from him! This is going in my Best of 2009 cookbook! Thanks, Nif! Made for ZWT5!
