Beef Tongue Salad

Beef Tongue Salad
Looking for a change? Try this delicious salad. It combines beef tongue, chicken, ham, mushrooms and balsamic vinaigrette. It takes time to prepare, but it's really worth the effort. I'm sure you will polish off the bowl in one sitting.


  • 1/2 beef tongue
  • 1/2 pound ham (fully cooked)
  • 1 chicken breast half
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (canned)
  • 5 black peppercorns
  • balsamic vinaigrette (for dressing)
  • 3 bay leaves
  • salt

1. Wash the chicken, place in a pot, add cold water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a gentle boil and cook for 40 minutes. Let cool.
2. Wash the tongue carefully and place it in a large pot of cold water (use enough to cover). Add peppercorns, bay leaves and salt (I also put a couple of baby carrots, onion and some dill, but that's absolutely optional). Bring to a boil and simmer for about 2,5 hours. Remove from water and when it's cool enough to handle, peel the skin (if you remove the tongue from the pot and put it immediately into cold water, this will make it very easy to peel).
