A little sweetness from the berries and whole lot of crunch from the cucumber makes this bright slaw an unexpected topper for brats. Pile on a big spoonful and serve the rest alongside.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan combine bratwurst and apple juice; bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 12 minutes, rearranging once until sausage reach 160°F on an instant-read thermometer.

  • Meanwhile, for Cucumber-Blueberry Slaw, in a medium bowl combine cabbage, cucumber, blueberries, and green onion. In a small bowl stir together buttermilk, mayonnaise, parsley, dill, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add buttermilk mixture to cabbage mixture; toss gently to coat.

  • For a charcoal or gas grill, place bratwurst on grill rack directly over medium heat. Grill 5 to 7 minutes or until sausage is browned, turning occasionally.

  • Serve bratwurst in toasted buns. Top with slaw.
