When we hear about bologna, we immediately imagine pink meat lying neatly in round rings on the supermarket shelves. However, there are many types! Prepared from turkey, beef, chicken, venison. For vegetarians, soy meat bologna has recently appeared, which is in no way inferior in taste to other types.

And you can also make a delicious salad that will delight any gourmet.
