OLD FASHIONED BOLOGNA SALAD

Old fashioned bologna salad is easy and delicious.

Old fashioned bologna salad is a classic that has been around for years.  It makes great sandwiches and we love it on saltine crackers.  Don’t knock this salad until you have tried it because it will surprise you at how good it is.  If you like bologna, you will probably like this recipe.  It is very versatile in that you can add or subtract ingredients you like or don’t like and it’s still good.  I am posting the recipe the way I make it for my family and how it was made years ago.

Give this old fashioned bologna salad a try and make it for your family.

1 pound of your favorite bologna (Can be a 1 lb. chunk or a package of sliced bologna)

1/3 to 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish

4 boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup salad dressing or mayonnaise

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

salt to taste, optional

Chop the bologna in very small pieces or you can use a grinder or a food processor.  We like it chopped in small pieces.  Add the pickle relish, eggs, mayonnaise or salad dressing and black pepper.  Mix well with a spoon.  I think this is best after being being refrigerated overnight but you don’t have to wait. Makes about 4 cups.  Enjoy!

  1. I love bologna salad. When I was growing up, we had a small country store, my mother would take the left over deli ends and make bolgna salad.. She did a one to one ratio of cheese and meat and a qtr ratio of relish and mayo (no eggs) I still make it but as you said it is very versatile. My mother would throw ham ends in when she had them and I like onions in mine. Thanks for the memories

  2. I was so happy when I came across this recipe. It brought back so many memories of when I was a kid and my mother would make this for me to take for my school lunch. Used to get a chocolate milk to wash it down with and that taste combination has stayed with me all these years, I’m 70 now. If I have a ham salad sandwich now I absolutely have to have a glass of chocolate milk too or it just doesn’t taste right.

  3. My mom used to make a version of this when I was a kid with four siblings. Our butcher used to save the bologna ends or “heels” for her and she would grind up the bologna in a meat grinder then add the pickle relish and mayo. I know it was a cheap lunch for us kids but I still crave this 50 years later. 5 stars

  4. Now, this is good. My husband and I just love it and I still make it for us. When our kids were little and still at home, they didn’t like it, but that was OK, just meant there was more for us! LOL!
    My Mama always ground the bologna up and we had it on sandwiches. Sure was filling when the pantry was getting bare.
    Thanks for the memories.
