Let’s get into Oktoberfest mood with this amazing fried Weisswurst salad

Yes, it’s that time of year again! Time to jump into your Dirndl or your Lederhosen, and off you go to the famous Theresienwiese in Munich. Have a Mass of beer or two and some grilled chicken or even better a leg of roasted pork. Oktoberfest in Munich is a fantastic experience. While I was living in Munich I went to the Wiesn almost every day while it was on. Sometimes just to grab some food of the many delish food stalls. So as I’m not living in Munich anymore I’m getting into Oktoberfest mood with this amazing fried Weisswurst salad. 

Weisswurst is a typical Bavarian white sausage. Usually you eat it cooked, with sweet mustard and Brezen. I added a bit of a twist to the traditional Bavarian dish. I cut it in slices and coated it with bread crumbs, just like a Schnitzel.

I served it on top of some lamb’s lettuce with Styrian pumpkin seed oil and mustard dressing. To make the recipe fructosefriendly I used Dijon mustard for the dressing. Swap the Dijon to some proper Bavarian sweet mustard to get the whole Oktoberfest package. The recipe is really simple but a real eye opener! Serve it with fresh lye Brezen and of course, some beer! Delicious!
