Soft Salami Recipes for Spring

It’s spring time, Salami lovers! The days are getting longer, weather is warmer, and baseball season is underway. Our all-beef Salami is curated with a blend of lean meat, beef brisket trimmings, zesty spices, and our famous hardwood hickory smoking. The smoky, garlic flavor is always a crowd favorite. The only thing that could make it better is, yes you guessed it, a few show stopping spring recipes featuring our Vienna Beef Soft Salami. 

Pasta Salad

Prepare for a dish even the pickiest of eaters can’t pass up on the picnic buffet. Don’t feel guilty about scooping mounds of pasta salad onto your dish–we promise no one is looking. Carb loads are in season and your paper plate can definitely handle this. 

Recipe

  • One box of Rotini Pasta
  • 1 1/2 cups Vienna Beef Hard Salami, cubed
  • 3 cups Grape Tomatoes, halved
  • 1 can Black Olives, sliced
  • 2 cups chopped Bell Peppers 
  • 1/2 cup chopped Red Onion
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh Mozzarella Pearls
  • ¾ cup. freshly grated Parmesan

Cook pasta according to the directions on the package. Strain and set aside to cool. Chop ingredients and place into a large bowl. Toss all ingredients together in bowl with dressing. Can be served immediately or chilled for 1-2 hours for a colder, more refreshing pasta salad. Store up to 3 days. 

Cheese and Salami Skewers

Yes, finger foods are always in season, which strengthens our claim that when you drop a platter of these on the coffee table, it’s a sure fire crowd pleaser. One might say these snacks channel “charcuterie board on-the-go.” The best part about these treats is that flavor combinations are endless. Starting with Vienna Beef Soft Salami, you can add your favorite cheese and olive combo, spice it up with a bit of basil, and even pop a cherry tomato on the end for good measure. We like to stick with the basics.
