COOL FOR SUMMER: Fleischsalat & Wurstsalat


Here are two delicious German salad recipes that are easy on your budget, a breeze to make, and won't heat up your kitchen on a hot summer day.  Both are so tasty that you'll make them all year long.

Wurstsalat Recipe 
(3 to 4 servings)


INGREDIENTS:
■ 1 pound (two cups or more) leftover cold cuts chunks (Ring Bologna, Fleischkaese, Jagdwurst, Schinkenwurst, etc.) but almost any leftover meat, including beef steak, could be turned into a delicious cold salad.
■ 1 cup firm Cheese (like Swiss)
■ 1 cup yellow or white Onions, medium-thin slices
■ 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes, halved
■ 1/2 cup Radishes, thinly sliced
■ 1 cup Pickles (preferably German pickles) cut into strips
■ 1/4 cup fresh Parsley, finely chopped
■ 1/4 cup White Wine Vinegar
■ 1/2 cup Oil (like Canola, Sunflower, Corn, Pumkin-seed, or Olive Oil)
■ 1/2 Tsp Pepper (adjust to taste)
■ 1/2 Tsp Salt (adjust to taste)
■ 1 Tbl Spicy Mustard

PREPARATION:
Slice the Meat, and Cheese into Julienne strips (or slices, or cubes) and then add all the other ingredients and toss.  Keep salad chilled until ready to serve.

  1. Try Fleischsalat with meats as described above, add a little onion, and pickles. Finish with some salt, pepper, mayonnaise and then add a little pinnaple juice. Our Marktkauf makes it that way and it's the best Fleischsalat we ever tasted. When done right the salary is light without the taste of pineapple. You will just be wondering what's in it.
