In a medium-sized pan, fry the chorizo for 3-4 minutes until lightly golden. Remove and mix together gently with the avocado and remaining salsa ingredients.

While the chorizo cooks, cook your boerewors on the BBQ or alongside the relish, for about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness, turning half way. Remove form the heat and set aside to rest on a warmed serving plate.

Assemble your rolls with the basil, salsa and boerewors.

Tip of the day

Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
