Ingredients: 4 oz German Bologna
2 small German style Dill Pickles
1/2 cup chopped onion I used green onion but you can also use about half of a medium onion.
2 tablespoons chopped parsley (a good handful off the bunch)
1/4 th cup of your favorite vinaigrette dressing or here is one I like Vinaigrette Dressing.
1 tablespoon juice from the pickle jar
Sour cream (optional)
1/4 cup Bell peppers strips (1/2 bell pepper)
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.
I order from the German Deli more frequently than ever.
I try to get in bulk to make the shipping dollars count.
Also there are sales all the time I like to take advantage of.
They are nice folks. If you don't believe me call them.
