German Fleischsalat is made out of fried or boiled meat, Lyoner Sausage (Bologna) or Leberkaese, cut in stripes with a lot of mayonnaise and pickles. The one you can buy already made often contains preservatives, so the home made version would be much better. Per German regulations the Fleischsalat must contain 25% meat and 25% pickles. If you add more than 25% meat like beef you call it a beef salad. It is a great party salad, try it out. Happy Cooking!
