This summer, beat the heat with a refreshing salad that not only will satisfy your hunger, but is full of fresh flavors and sweet (long awaited!) summer corn. Layered with crispy linguiça sausage, it’s the perfect salad to bring to barbeques and summer potlucks, to counteract the mayonnaise-laden salads that will be on the table.
What’s linguiça sausage? It’s born in Portugal and easily found in grocery stores around the United States. Some places where it’s popular include Seattle, Northeastern Massachusetts, Hawaii, and Rhode Island. Made from smoked and cured pork and spiced with garlic and paprika, linguiça is a flavorful sausage that adds a small amount of heat and a large amount of flavor to whatever you add it to. Enjoy this salad alongside grilled fish or meats, or all on its own as a stellar meal.
