While the main event is the meat on the grill, pre-braai snacks are equally crucial to set the tone for a proper South African style feast! Here are some salami appetiser ideas to keep you nibbling:
Salami and cheese skewers
Assemble bite-sized skewers by threading slices of salami and your favourite cheese. Opt for a variety of cheeses such as cheddar, mozzarella, or gouda to create a symphony of flavours. These skewers offer a perfect balance of salty and creamy, making them an irresistible starter.
Salami roll-ups with cream cheese
Spread a layer of whipped cream cheese on thin slices of salami, then roll them up into savoury spirals. The combination of the tangy cream cheese and the robust flavour of salami creates a delightful burst of taste in every bite. Serve these roll-ups chilled for a refreshing touch.
Salami and olive tapenade crostini
Elevate your braai snacks with crispy crostini topped with a zesty olive tapenade and thin slices of salami. The briny olives complement the savoury salami, while the crunch of the crostini adds a satisfying texture. This sophisticated snack is perfect for those who appreciate bold flavours.
Salami-wrapped grilled asparagus
Combine the smokiness of a braai with the savoury goodness of salami by wrapping thin slices of salami around fresh asparagus spears. Grill them until the salami is crispy and the asparagus is tender.
Salami and roasted red pepper bruschetta
Top crispy bruschetta with a flavourful mixture of diced salami, roasted red peppers, and fresh herbs. This colourful, savoury topping adds a burst of Mediterranean flair to your pre-braai snacks. The combination of smokey salami and sweet roasted red peppers is a winning duo.
Crispy salami cups with a Mediterranean filling
Fill a cupcake tray with slices of salami, bake them for 10 mins. For the filling, chop up some tomato, cucumbers, and olives. Drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil over the filling and season with salt and pepper. Fill your baked salami cups and top with a cube of feta. Drizzle a bit of balsamic vinegar and top with a tiny basil leaf. Makes the perfect bite!
