Preparation Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 30 min

Serves: 4

You will need:

  • 2 Swiss Deli Cervelas sausages, skinned, sliced lengthways and cut into thin semi-circles
  • 200g Emmental cheese, cut into thin strips
  • 4 tbsp. sunflower oil
  • 3tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Pinch of caster sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small red onion, halved and finely sliced
  • 50g pickled gherkins, thinly sliced
  • 2tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley


1. In a serving bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and sugar. Season well with salt and pepper. Toss the onion in the dressing and leave it to marinate for at least 15 minutes. This will help to soften the onion, in terms of both taste and texture.

3. Sprinkle with parsley, and marinate for at least 15 minutes (up to 1 hour) before serving with green salad bread or rice.
