My Version of Swiss Wurstsalat *Sausage & Cheese Salad*

Swiss food is highly influenced by neighboring regions such as Italy, France and Germany but also features specific ‘Swiss’ dishes. Swiss food is usually comprised of plain ingredients such as potatoes and cheese as Switzerland was historically a farmers country.

A typical Wurstsalat which literally translates to Sausage & Cheese Salad is extremely popular in the German parts of Switzerland and is my favourite Swiss Dish. Very easy to make and brings great enjoyment if paired with freshly baked bread and a cold mug of beer.
