Wurstsalat ... a traditional meat salad from southern Germany. In the north, it's Fleischsalat. Both are wonderfully different and delicious! However, this is sometimes not the case and a southern one will have mayo and a northern one not! Try them both. Then, choose your favorite. 

There are so many variations for both of these. Check below for lots of ideas on making this meat salad that's traditionally just served with some German bread or buns. As well, one of our Facebook fans sent in the one his wife makes. The recipe is below and a photo collage, as well.

 Check out the recipe that Garry Brotschul sent in. He calls it Bayerisches Fleischsalat, but I think most would call it Bavarian Wurstsalat! You check it out and let me know what you'd call it!

Oma says,

Can't find any good German bread?

I like to make my Artisan Bread. It's so easy to make (just have to allow time for the resting and rising) ... and it almost tastes like German Brötchen. It goes so good with both of these meat salads!


Ready to make some? Here you go ...

1. Oma's Wurstsalat ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb cooked salami or ring bologna
  • 2 large pickles, German if available
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp sunflower oil
  • salt, pepper
  • fresh parsley to garnish

Instructions:

  • Cut bologna into thin strips (julienned) or thin slices
  • Dice pickles
  • Cut onions into thin rings
  • Put bologna, pickles, and onions into a bowl and gently mix together.
  • Make a salad dressing by mixing together the vinegar and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over Wurstsalat and mix. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and let sit about ½ hour in fridge before serving.
  • Serve with German bread, pumpernickel, or buns.

2. Oma's Fleischsalat ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb cooked salami or ring bologna
  • 2 large pickles, German if available
  • about 5 tbsp mayonnaise, German if available
  • about 1 tbsp mustard, German if available (optional)

Instructions:

  • Either dice or cut meat into thin strips (julienned)

3. Christian's Rindfleisch Salat (Beef Salad)

One of our German Facebook fans, Christian Spallek, sent in photos (below) and instructions of the Rindfleisch Salat (Beef Salad) made by his wife.

He says that whenever she makes a Beef Soup (one of his favorites), she’ll buy double the meat. She’ll take half the cooked meat (about 1.5 lb) as leftovers for her delicious and easy Beef Salad, made just the way her mother makes it.

  • First the cold meat gets diced into small pieces
  • Add 2 diced medium red onions and several diced pickles (as much as you like)
  • Take 3 hard-boiled eggs, cut into small pieces and add
  • Season with Maggi, salt, and pepper
  • Add white or red vinegar (depending on your taste) and some (up to 6 spoons) good sunflower oil.
  • Mix it well and put in the fridge for 2 - 3 hours.
  • Good with Bratkartoffeln (German fried potatoes) and a glass of fresh beer. Guten Appetit!
