This Is the Most Flavor-Packed Salad You’ll Ever Have

Smashed Potato Chorizo Sheet Pan 635 94d1b95ae07a463fbadae8a53ca4d033

This unconventional salad isn’t shy. Smashed baby potatoes soak up the spicy juices from Mexican chorizo as they roast together harmoniously on a sheet pan. The two become a dinner salad once they’re tossed with shredded lettuce and scallions, drizzled with a puckering lime vinaigrette, and finished with plenty of salty cheese crumbles.

Queso fresco is a semisoft Mexican cheese, similar to feta in milky-tangy flavor and crumbly texture, that can be found in rounds in the cheese section of most grocery stores. If you can’t find it, a mild feta can be substituted.
