The Polish name for this common side dish translates to “vegetable salad” but many Americans might think of it as Potato Salad. Whatever you decide to call it., it’s a fantastic side dish that’s present at every Polish table during the holidays, and it also makes the perfect side dish for barbecue get togethers as it’s a perfect compliment to kielbasa sausage, or other smoked meats.
Once you have this side dish made, be sure to grab a bottle of our Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce which is a perfect for sausage. You can find our sauce either on our webpage for out of state residents, or if you reside in Texas grab a bottle at your local H-E-B Grocery Store.
