I adopted this recipe and this is the original description, "This is my families version of Fleischsalat. It is not like what you can buy in German shops under the same name (they just contain bologna, pickles and mayonnaise). My dad used to make a huge bucket for the Christmas holidays and for me it's still part of Christmas, though I'd eat it any other time of the year as well. It is lighter than the standard Fleischsalat. Use more Fleischwurst if you like".
