Creamy Salami and Dill Pickle Dip

Crave-Worthy Cream Cheese Salami Pickle Dip is a quick and easy update of the salami and pickle pinwheel appetizers of the past, but this updated version is faster, easier, and has a bigger kick of flavor.

One of my favorite appetizers I remember from years ago 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 the taste buds. I loved them then, and I still do now. That said, this cream cheese salami dill pickle dip tastes better and is a whole lot easier to make. Honest!

What I didn’t love about those yummy little pinwheels was that they were a bit messy 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, stage left; Crave-Worthy Cream Cheese Salami Pickle Dip. It’s magical! 🙂

Cream cheese salami pickle dip is an appetizer you can mix together with only one bowl, and it comes together in just a matter of minutes.

The easy instructions;

  • Blend the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, chopped salami, chopped dill pickles, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper together until smooth and creamy.
  • Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  • Serve with baguette slices, assorted vegetables, or crackers. 

Cream cheese dill pickle dip packs an excellent punch of flavor as 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.

Ideas for serving;

Cream cheese salami pickle dip is delicious when spread on toast, bagels, crackers, 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 or Greek yogurt when topping a baked potato. 

Or, why not slather some between two slices of bread for the ultimate dill pickle dip grilled cheese sandwich? The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination!

This looks so good! I've didn't always like the taste of dill pickles, but my local popcorn shop started selling dill pickle flavored popcorn that was AMAZING, so now I'm always up for trying something with that flavor! I'll have to try these! :)
