German Fleischsalat (meat salad) – 3 delicious variations

In this post, I’ll show you how to make Fleischsalat yourself. It’s simple and super quick to make. 

Fleischsalat is a classic spread here in Germany. It tastes great on a freshly baked bread. If you have access to the Fleischwurst you’ll need for the Fleischsalat you can buy it. Or you can make it yourself. It is up to you. You can find my Fleischwurst recipe here. You could also substitute with Bologna if you have no other options.

You can find the Fleischsalat recipe as a video or to read through here on the page.

Because the preparation is so easy I added a Fleischsalat without mayonnaise and an “Asia inspired” version as well. 

Have fun and good luck making it!
