This is a very complicated recipe but well worth the effort!! Too often, German cooking is viewed as simple and easy. This recipe provides something different--German cooking as it is presented in the best 5-star restaurants all over the continent. Due to the combination of spirits in the sauce, this salad is excellent with almost any drink.
