agree  msherms: normally coldcuts with pickles, onions, etc. - sometimes there might be cheese (topfenjause, etc.) but I think that coldcuts is fine - perhaps cold lunchean platter would do the trick (I go to Austria at least once a year-)

agree  BrigitteHilgner: I think this is sufficiently clear. The Austrian version of a "Ploughman's lunch", but normally you don't eat it for lunch, it' tends to serve as a kind of late breakfast or afternoon/evening snack/meal.
