Wurstsalat... German Bologna Salad

A looooong time ago, I used to visit with a friend of the family. She was born in Germany and moved to the states with her father. Her brother stayed in Germany with her mother. Her brother would come to visit in the summer. I adored those visits, listening to them talk to each other, even though I couldn't understand much. One time, her brother brought along his (then) fiance. She made a salad that I loved! I asked her for a recipe, but she couldn't speak English well enough to translate it. So, we gave up. Well, through the help of a few friends, I found a few recipes, combined a few things that I remembered and here you have it! Finally, after all this time! I have a little tweeking to do, but this is IT!!! YAY!

4 oz German Bologna
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup German style Dill Pickles 

1/4 cup Bell peppers
1/4 cup Cucumber
1/4 cup Tomato

2 Boiled Eggs (Whites Only)

1 Tablespoon Vinaigrette Dressing
1 tablespoon juice from the pickle jar
2 tablespoons Mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Sour cream

Chop the bologna, cheese, pickles and vegetables into small cubes and add to a medium size bowl. Add the pickle juice and vinaigrette in a small bowl. Whisk in the mayo and sour cream. Add to the bologna and veggie mixture and toss. Let the mixture sit for a little bit or store in the frig. The longer it sits, the more the flavors will marry.

Many of the recipes call for onion. I wanted the flavor but not the bite of raw onion. So, I substituted some onion powder... just a sprinkle. Make it your own. Leave out what you don't want and add your favorites!
