The Wedding of Mrs Fox is two German Fairy Tales. In the first tale a fox with nine tails thinks his wife's cheating on him. So he plays dead to see what she does, and as soon as another nine-tailed fox comes along, she's all set to hook up with him, except her husband revives and beats everyone up first. In the second tale, Mr. Fox actually dies, and a wolf and a bunch of other animals court the now-widowed Mrs. Fox. She's picky and rejects each of them until another fox shows up. Then they get married and have a festive wedding. The Salad is a less known tale, also by the Brothers Grimm, where a young huntsman meets a little old woman and find a rewards due to his kindness. The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859), were born in the German state of Hesse. They were universally known for the collection of over two hundred folk tales they made from oral sources and published in two volumes of 'Nursery and Household Tales' in 1812 and 1814. Although their intention was to preserve such material as part of German cultural and literary history, and their collection was first published with scholarly notes and no illustration, the tales soon came into the possession of young readers. This was in part due to Edgar Taylor, who made the first English translation of part of the tales in 1823. (Summary from Wikipedia, Shmoop and Sinkronigo)
