🥗 Trending Amish Salads & Relishes
Cucumber Relish: I remember stumbling upon this home-based Amish "cannery" where an Amish woman and her small staff were churning out cans and cans of wonderful relishes. And she was nice enough to share her recipes. Check out this delicious one here.
Easy Chicken Salad: This is a super simple - and flavorful - salad, more about it here:
This is about the easiest chicken salad recipe you'll find. I'm not sure what qualifies this as an "Amish recipe" per se, but Amish cooking and baking is known for its simple elegance and this Easy Amish Chicken Salad qualifies as that. Easy Amish Chicken Salad is a "base recipe", you can add your own touches. Feel free to add some chopped hard-boiled egg, some brown mustard, barbecue sauce, and on and on, you can add endless twists and variations to this. But if you choose to just use this recipe, I doubt you'll be disappointed, because the flavor is perfect. Liquid smoke would probably enhance it, but I didn't have that on hand and it was still amazing.

Amish Ham Loaf: Delicious meal. More about it here: This post features a classic homemade Amish ham loaf recipe. Homemade ham loaf is a favorite on the menu in most Amish communities around the holidays.

Sausage-making can be a messy job,but the end result is wonderfully flavored meat that soothes and fills. Old-Fashioned Sausage Pie.
