  • 5 Chicken Brats
  • 5 Brat Buns
  • 1/2 Onion cut into pieces
  • 1 Tbs Butter
  • 1 Bottle or can of beer I used 1 But Light
  • 4 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbs Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tbs Agave Nectar or honey
  • 1 Tbs Dijon Mustard
  • 20-40 Croutons
  • 4 Tbs shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 4-8 cups spring greens
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Mustard


  • In a deep frying pan that will be able to hold liquid, melt the butter and stir in the onions. Fry until they become translucent, add 1 tbs olive oil and add the brats. Brown on each side, 5 minutes on each side, about 10-12 minutes total. when they have a nice color on each side, add the entire can of beer and let cook on medium high for half an hr to an hour.
  • For the salad dressing. In a bowl whisk together the 3 tbs olive oil, balsamic vinegar, agave nectar and Dijon mustard. Add a sprinkle of salt and some cracked pepper (I used 5 turns).To assemble the salads lay out 4 small bowls, add in spring greens, add 1 tbs Parmesan cheese to each bowl, 5-8 croutons per bowl and top with 1 tbs of the dressing.
  • To assemble the brats open bun and insert brat, and add some of the onions from the pot, spread with mustard or desired condiments.
