Here I have 2 stacks of German bologna
I am going to make 2 different kinds of Fleischsalat. First the one with mayonnaise in the dressing cut in strips and one with just dressing and chopped into small chunks.

Cut the Bologna into strips and then into small chunks.


Cut the pickles into small chunks as well. I used Kühne dill pickles from Germany.

Finely dice the onion and add it to the salad.


Chop the parsley and add.

Add the vinaigrette dressing, and juice from the pickle jar. blend and refrigerate for a day if possible. As it sits the flavors mix and improve.

You can also finely chop the fleischsalat.

Tomato filled with Wurstsalat chopped fine and mixed with a bit of mayo.

You can also add small chunks of green or red bell peppers.


One way to serve Fleischsalat is on a bed of lettuce.

The name Kopfsalat means..
.head (Kopf) + salad (salat).

A very popular lettuce in Germany is called Kopfsalat
In the United States it is called Butter Lettuce, Bibb or Limestone.
Kopfsalat gets its name Butter lettuce because the leaves are rich, sweet and not bitter and "buttery". It gets the name Limestone lettuce from the fact that it grows in a very limestone based soil. Perhaps the reason it isn't so popular in the United States is that it is often 2 to 3 times as expensive. However 3 times is only a couple bucks more and definitely a great splurge. I just save the 2 bucks in another way.

Limestone is an American heirloom lettuce developed by John Bibb 1865.



Here is a salad plate with a blend of creamy fleischsalat in strips and chopped fleischsalat in the vinaigrette to
stuff eggs. You can also use hollowed out tomato halves or bell pepper halves as "edible boats" for your Fleischsalat.

I used the chopped Fleischsalat stuffing the eggs with it

A good dark bread is a great platform for Fleischsalat, like an open face sandwich. I used
Pumpernickel. I used the chopped Fleischsalat and added a touch of sour cream to the mix.
