Switz Cheese

My friend has returned from her life of gorgeous scenery and amazing travels from Switzerland. She is here for a 2 week visit to our fair city of Toronto and I was just looking up some authentic food that I could cook for her from the beautiful country of Switzerland…

What about this recipe? Looks quite interesting from this webpage:

Recipe for Wurstsalat (Sausage Salad)


Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 1 bundle red radish, cut into slices
  • 2 carrots, cut into slices
  • 100 g (0.22 pounds) Emmentaler cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 100 g (0.22 pounds) Greyerzer cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 100 g (0.22 pounds) Tilsiter cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 3 cervelas (pork sausage, not cooked or grilled, just raw), cut into slices
  • ½ cucumber, cut into small pieces
  • 4 potatoes, cooked, cut into small pieces
  • pepper
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 onion, hacked
  • 1 piece of garlic, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon spices
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons oil
  • 1 or 2 eggs, cooked hard
  • 2 tomatoes
  • Chive, cut into small


  1. Put the vegetables and the cheese in a bowl and mix them well.
  2. Make the sauce with all the ingredients mentioned above, from pepper to oil and stir well.
  3. Pour the sauce over the salad and mix well.
  4. Peal the eggs and cut them into slices.
  5. Cut the tomatoes and use them together with the eggs for decoration.
  6. Pour the chive over the salad.

I am not sure how I “hack” an onion though. Looks a bit intense. I also have a strong feeling that my friend will be craving for this fine and diverse Toronto cuisine. Good idea, but I think I will stick to something like a sandwich or a burger!
