Salami is a kind of cured sausage made from air-dried and fermented meat such as beef, pork or veal, along with different herbs and spices. It is historically popular in Europe where salami was created to address inconsistencies in the supply of fresh meat. Salami can be smoked, salted or air-dried. You can purchase salami in readily sliced or pre-packed versions, as well as sliced fresh at deli counters.
Salami makes a hearty and delicious sandwich filler, added to salads like potato salads or a pizza topping. It is also good as additions to pasta sauces, risotto, vegetable and meat dishes. Allow us to share with you an alternative to the usual uses of salami, presenting Italian Salami Carbonara.
