Tomato Basil Salad with Kishke Croutons

"Back in the day, kishke was the kosher answer to black pudding — a stuffing made from meat and grain. It's often slow-cooked sliced and served in stew, soup or cholent. Although it's easy to make kishke from scratch, if you're looking for a shortcut, KOL Foods make an excellent product that is nitrate free, and is made from natural and organic ingredients." - This American Bite
