Fleischsalat is a German style meat salad made with bologna and sour gherkins,  mostly used as a delicious sandwich spread.

Fleischsalat is my recipe of the day. This is a German version of ham salad which uses bologna as the meat.

The method is quite simple; it’s the type of bologna used that really makes the difference. Use a German style ring bologna or ringwurst, as it is called.

This  is one of my husband’s favorites  and I have prepared it a number of ways. Besides being great on crackers with a cold beer, it also does a fine job as a sandwich spread.

Also I have another spread- Ham Salad – whenever you find yourself knee-deep in leftover holiday ham (or just have some extra on hand), keep calm and make ham salad!
