Easy Grilled Kielbasa & Pepper Salad

Is it just me, or are a lot of other people in a hurry when it comes to dinner time?  Over this last year of I’ve realized that making something quick doesn’t mean that it has to be unhealthy.  In fact, sometimes the healthiest things are made with the least ingredients…yay!

Grilling is always a go to when I’m in a rush because there’s nearly no clean up.  My husband’s Polish so we always have some Polish sausage or kielbasa (okay – maybe not the healthiest option of all  he-he!) in our fridge and I also keep sweet peppers on hand to snack on.  Today, I’ll show you how I used these items to make a simple, healthy and yummy dinner.  The easy mustard vinegarette compliments the sausage so nicely.

You will need:

Polish Kielbasa (I like to buy the nitrate free sausage)

Small Sweet Peppers

Romaine Lettuce

White vinegar

Canola Oil (Olive oil if you prefer)







Step 1:

In a small bowl mix:

3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar

Add a dash of salt

Add a dash of sugar

Add a dash of pepper

Add just under as much mustard as you added vinegar

Mix together with a wisk

Taste your dressing. If it’s too strong, add some oil. If you like it tangier, add more vinegar or mustard.

Set aside to mix with romaine lettuce just before serving.

Step 2:

Grilling sausage and peppers

Heat grill to medium-high

Cut kielbasa into desired lengths (mine are about 2″)

Rinse peppers and sprinkle with salt

Place peppers and kielbasa on grill and cook until nice grill marks are formed and peppers and sausage are cooked through ( I buy pre-cooked kielbasa so it’s especially easy)

Once cooked, remove sausage and peppers from the grill

Step 3

Add your dressing to your romaine lettuce and toss

Place grilled kielbasa and peppers on top of bed of lettuce


Serve with french fries, bread or even rice as a side!

This is really easy and can be modified in so many ways. It would be really yummy to add some tomatoes or even red onions to the salad.  Make it your own and enjoy!
