My Easy Salami Appetizer gets gobbled up at every party I host.
Easy Salami Appetizer
Sometimes you just need a super easy-to-make appetizer recipe that isn’t all that fancy. I find that this recipe is perfect for sporting event parties (though I served them at my Christmas party last year too). Everyone likes salami, and these are perfect for just picking up and eating quickly while holding a beverage in the other hand. Someone long ago shared the 3-ingredients that make the appetizer happen. I tried it out on some party guests, and I’ve been making it ever since.
How to make Easy Salami Appetizers:
Here’s how it works: a piece of salami, a smudge of cream cheese and a piece of pepperoncini (they’re found in a jar near the pickles).
Fold ’em up, fasten with a toothpick, and that’s it– just pile them onto a platter. For a big party, I like to buy the salami in bulk at Costco, and you can pick up a big tub of spreadable cream cheese there too. As far as the pepperoncini go, I cut out the seeds and just put a little piece of seedless pepperoncini on top. If you’re not familiar with pepperoncini, they’re not overly spicy like jalapeno. They are just spicy enough to add some interest and flavor to the appetizer.
It’s easy to eat a lot of these in a short amount of time, so they’ll be a popular choice for munching at your party. In other words, make a lot of them!
P.S. If they don’t get gobbled up the day you make them, pop them in a zip bag and munch on them for a couple days after that.
