Wurstsalat or Fleischsalat

German Fleischsalat (literally “Meat Salad”) is always popular. In a nation well known for its love of meat, you might not be surprised to find sausage in places it’s not usually found. Salad is certainly one of them! This said: the dish is also popular with the Swiss as well as Germans, and can often include heaps of cheese mixed in with the dressing.
