German Fleischsalat

by Dorothy Renaud
(Trenton, Ontario, Canada)

I am looking for a recipe using shredded deli meats,

(probably a ham type or Lyoner bologna), mixed in a
mayo (don't know which brand), and finely chopped dill pickles (I think). It is delicious cold salad and can
be found in most delis.

Please help me. Many thanks! Vielen danke!

My mother was a native German and a chef. I grew up on fleischsalat, she must have made a batch every week we ate so much of it! Wherever we lived in the U.S. she would seek out a German store to get her provisions. She had her own recipes for most classic dishes, but compared to most German food found here they are exceptional. For fleischsalat, I know that she used Leberkase ('liver cheese', though it would remind you more of mortadella or bologna) and ALWAYS German pickles. Dressing was mayo, pickle juice, a little German mustard, dash of Maggi or Worcestershire. I'm lucky enough to live in the Dallas area now, where the local sausage haus also has good quality Leberkase so I can get my fix now and then :).

Hello Dorothy (notice we have the same last name!)
You are talking about what you correctly call Fleischsalat, not Wurstsalat.
I am German, but live in the USA. I figured this recipe out on my own, after not being able to find the right recipe anywhere.
It is surprisingly easy:
Cut your thin cut bologna in thin strips.
Cut pickles in same size strips. If any way possible try to use German pickles.
The dressing is nothing but a little pickle juice mixed into mayonnaise(I use Hellman's). Just enough to thin it out a little.
Hope this helps

German Wurstsalat
by: Anonymous

Hi Dorothy,

I think you are looking for a typical Bavarian Wurstsalat which is prepared with Lyoner saugage.

You will find a recipe if you look under Brozeit on the navbar and then scroll down the page to find the link to the sausage salad recipe.

Hope it is what you are looking for.

Kind regards
