Preheat oven to 300°F.

Remove from oven and cool. In a large non-stick fry pan over medium-high heat, add 15 ml (one tablespoon) olive oil; warm oil and add mushrooms. Sauté mushrooms until crispy, about 8 - 10 minutes. Mix dressing ingredients in a jar and shake to combine. To assemble salad: On each of 8 chilled plates, place 375 ml ( ¾ cup) arugula and garnish with 10 roasted tomatoes, 15 ml (1 Tbs.) mushrooms, and 30 ml (2 Tbs.) chorizo. Drizzle 15 ml (1 Tbs.) dressing over the salad. Add cheese garnish, if desired.
