BOLOGNA SALAD RECIPE-

This bologna salad is such a unique salad recipe. It is loaded with veggies and tossed in simple mayonnaise as the dressing. The bologna chunks combined with cauliflower florets, peppers, and cucumbers bring such a crispy and crunchy salad. I love how the cucumbers and red peppers compliment the cauliflower florets and bologna.

Though the salad is so unique, the taste is phenomenal. You can serve the salad in lettuce as lettuce wraps.

Chef’s tip: We used real mayonnaise for the salad but you can substitute for Miracle Whip combined with sweet relish.

WHAT KIND OF BOLOGNA DO I USE?

You can use your favorite bologna meat from the deli department at your local grocery store.

When ordering the meat, ask them to slice the pieces into thick chunks (about a size 8) so the pieces are too small in the salad.

If you have a European store near you, doktorska kielbasa works great.

Many like ring bologna in this recipe but we most definitely prefer bologna from the local deli. If you do use ring bologna, be sure to peel the skin.

Chef’s tip: I don’t recommend using ground bologna in this recipe.

We love this version of the salad but here are some ingredients that would be great in the salad:

  • pickles
  • Boiled egg
  • Cheese
  • Sweet pickle relish
