Sizzling Sausage Salad

I have been eating a lot of salads recently due to the hot weather. These have usually had a warm element to them, this sausage salad was delicious, I love the warm cherry tomatoes too, they added a lovely sweetness to the dish along with the sweet sausages.

Sizzling Sausage Salad (from Good Food Magazine January 2004)
(Serves 4)

1 tbsp olive oil
400g sausages
1 red onion, roughly chopped
1 heaped tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp light muscovado sugar
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 little gem lettuces, shredded
1 large avocado, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Using scissors, snip the sausages into quarters straight into the pan. Throw in the onion, and fry for a minute or two, stirring every now and then to brown everything. Spoon in the mustard and sugar, tip in the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes more, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are just beginning to split and the mixture is coated in the sweet mustard glaze.

Meanwhile, arrange the salad ingredients Spoon the hot sausage mixture on top. Add the vinegar and 1 tbsp water to the pan and stir it over the heat to dislodge all those tasty flavourings from the pan. Spoon the pan juices over the salad
