Salad Dnister (Cabbage, Peas and Sausage)

Salad Dnister (Cabbage, Peas and Sausage)

Salad Dnister (just like a river) is a popular in West Ukraine dish originated in Carpathian mountains region, and made its way to other places as it is easy, not expensive and fast to do and very tasty.

Main ingredient of this salad is shredded cabbage, so you can consider it to be a coleslaw with a sausage and peas dressed with mayonnaise.

A bit of a challenge here would be to find suitable sausage. The closest translation to the kind of sausage you need I could come up with is “half-smoked summer sausage”, however I am pretty sure that sounds weird in english, and if you know how to call it better – please let me know. Krakowska or Ternopil’ska sausage will work here, if you can find any of those in Ukrainian or European shop.

yum… I will have to add this one to my recipes to try, as soon as I get my hands on some good Ukrainian or Polish Kobasa.

This dish like something I would like to try, since I never had it before. First I have to visit NYC, to get some good Ukrainian sausage. I do not like canned veggies, so I would have to use frozen peas, and most likely cook it first.

If any of your readers are looking for places to find best sausage – Kobasa – I will help them out by pointing them to my list of the specialty shops I am familiar with:
