Mmmm salami sandwich… 🙂 When life gets busy, having a few good sandwich recipes up your sleeve is brilliant! I’m generally not big on cold sandwiches so for me to love a sandwich, it has to be pretty awesome.

This salami sandwich literally takes about 5 minutes to put together but it tastes fancy and is so satisfying. It’s perfect for a work or school lunch since you can make it the night before. The spread is cream cheese based so your sandwich won’t get soggy.

    This is a great recipe as I love salami sandwiches with cream cheese on sourdough bread. I also add chopped pepperoncinis to my sandwich.

    I have made this several times and I just love it. The only thing I do different is I use french bread and toast the inside with a little butter. I also add a little salt and pepper to the cream cheese mixture. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    Me and my mum enjoyed making this recipe a lot i think it was quick and easy though in our religion we cant be eating pork ham or salami so we used chicken or other poultry instead which really made our big family love it! Thanks!

    As we are not big fans of salami I used ham and OMG so tasty!
    Thanks Natasha!

    Very disappointed. Genoa salami has so much flavor and taste. It is complemented by something like provolone and perhaps mustard and lettuce. But the cream cheese combination does nothing for either. I tried it and did not enjoy anything about the combo. Sorry. I do love genoa salami and cream cheese in their own right. You know, like classics such as cream cheese and jelly. But we do love your site and all of your other recipes so far. Love your chicken and shrimp fettucini with home-made fettucine.

        I love Genoa salami but I don’t eat it much. I have a favorite sandwich I have always made with it that might seem strange. It is Genoa salami with crunchy peanut butter and jelly (usually guava jelly). I use a grainy bread with it. Your sandwich sounds great to me too and I will make it but maybe with a cream cheese spread which I get at Costco and other places. Can’t think of name but it comes in packs of three.

      Curious of this is a Eastern European style sandwich. I visited Romania a number of years ago and had a sandwich somewhat similar to this for breakfast, but with gouda. It was amazing! My kids love salami, so I’ll be making this, I’m sure!

    I have a long list in my head of all the sandwiches this will work with.

    I pack lunch for my Sister for work and include a 1/2 sandwich for the road every day. So many opportunities to try this yummy mix.

    Thank you!!

    I cannot wait to hit the bread isle and the grocery store for this. Please remember the ones who pack lunches daily. It is a grind but this sounds great. Let us know if you have more. It beats PB&J. or pimento cheese or other similar things. Thank you.

    I found this today in your What You’re Saying column. I’ve printed it out to make for my grandsons to take to the beach. It sounds delicious & easy, plus the best part is it keeps overnight.
