Crave Worthy Cream Cheese Salami Appetizer Spread with Dill Pickles is my quick and easy update of the salami and pickle pinwheel appetizers of the past. But this version is faster, easier, and has a bigger kick of flavor.
One of the favorite appetizers I remember from years back is the one where you spread cream cheese over slices of salami, with dill pickle spears rolled inside, and then you slice them to form little pinwheels. The concept was super simple and the flavor of those tasty morsels hit all the proper bells and whistles on my taste buds. I just loved them, and still do. But this Cream Cheese Salami Spread with Dill Pickles is better. Honest!
But, what I didn’t love about those delicious pinwheels was that they were a little too finicky for me regarding their assembly, and they never rolled up as neatly or held together as nicely, as I would have liked.
If you’re like me, when you want to make something simple then you also want something that will be neat and easy to prepare. Something that doesn’t require a whole lot of finger dexterity or a significant amount of coordination. Enter; Crave Worthy Cream Cheese Salami Spread with Dill Pickles. It’s magical! 🙂
Cream Cheese Salami Spread is an appetizer you can mix together with only one bowl and it comes together in only a matter of minutes. It packs an excellent savory, creamy punch of flavor like those little pinwheels did, but these are even better because I’ve kicked up the flavor with the addition of a few basic ingredients you probably already have on hand in your pantry and fridge.
Cream Cheese Salami Spread with Dill Pickles is delicious when slathered on toast, bagels, or baguettes. It also makes a tasty dip for your favorite vegetables, and it rates high marks when it’s used as an alternative for sour cream when topping a baked potato. Or, why not sandwich it between two slices of bread for the ultimate cream cheese salami spread with dill pickles grilled cheese sandwich? The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination!
