Hometown kitchen. Wurstsalat

The other evening I was feeling a bit homesick so I thought that some comfort food from my hometown could help to cheer me up.

Since I had a jar of German sausages – which are not at all like the British ones, or even the Italians – I opted for a classic South Tyrolean salad. It is very easy to prepare, and is excellent accompanied with a potato salad to experience the full flavour of the Alps.

  • 3 thick German sausages, sliced
  • 1 red onion, cut in half and sliced
  • 4-5 pickled cucumbers, sliced
  • Salt, pepper, red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil to taste

Basically mix sausages, cucumbers and onions in a salad bowl, season with salt and pepper and mix. Then add the vinegar (a generous pour) and some olive oil. Toss everything and set aside for at least half an hour before serving. The more it waits, the better flavours develop and blend together. I usually prepare it in the evening and then eat it at lunch the next day (obviously it stays in the fridge overnight!)

If you want to add a kick – or if you want to tacke your digestion – you can also add some thinly sliced yellow pepper. Or some borlotti beans as well.

  1. Thanks for pointing out your version! Seems like the only difference between our versions is that your ingredients are thickly sliced and mine thinly. I wasn’t aware Tyrol and Southern Germany had this delicacy in common 🙂
