Potato skewers with sausage and zucchini

Salami is a tasty, ready-to-eat cold cut of pork, beef or veal meat seasoned with herbs and spices. You can use salami in a variety of foods, in different forms such as salted, smoked or air dried. Add salami to sandwiches, salads, omelets, pizzas and pastas, or mix it with rice, meat and vegetable dishes. Enhance the flavor of salami by lightly frying and browning it before adding to foods.

Dice 1/2 pound of salami into 1/2-inch cubes and set aside. Place a nonstick skillet on medium heat for three minutes.

Pour 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Add the diced salami and turn the heat on high. Cook the salami for two minutes on either side, or until crisp and lightly brown.

Transfer the salami to a serving dish and use as desired. Alternatively, reduce the heat to medium, add two eggs and mix with the salami. Cook for three minutes to prepare scrambled eggs and salami.


Prepare a quick vegetable-salami stir fry. Add 1/4 cup each of carrots, green beans, tomatoes and onions to the fried salami. Mix salt, pepper and other seasonings according to taste. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes and serve warm.
