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!
**Please Note – The printable recipe card with detailed instructions, complete ingredient measurements, and nutritional information for making creamy dill pickle dip is available near the end of this post.
The ingredient list for making cream cheese salami pickle dip;
- Softened Cream Cheese
- Chopped Salami
- Chopped Dill Pickles
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Dill Weed
- Worcestershire Sauce
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 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.
