I Am NOT Hiding the Salami

Do you remember the end of Grumpy Old Men when Burgess Meredith rattled off all of those euphemisms for sex? "Hiding the Salami" was one of his milder suggestions, and all were hilarious. However, I am not here to talk about romps in the bedroom. The theme of my blog may be "My Menu with a Little Life Thrown In", but I am NOT taking you into THAT aspect of my life. We are still focusing on the menu. :~)

"I am NOT Hiding the Salami" because the salami is right On My Plate as the main ingredient in a salad that I recently discovered. My meat loving Hubby is in heaven. A side dish that is just as hearty as the main meal makes him happy. I am thrilled with the simplicity of the recipe and the savory blend of flavors. If it is really too hot to cook, top some salad greens with this Italian-themed blend for a complete meal.

Now, quit blushing and go play with your salami. Trust me. You will like it.

Salami, Mozzarella, and Tomato Salad

½ pound salami, cut into ¼ inch strips
¼ pound mozzarella cheese, cut into ½ inch pieces
1 ½ cups grape tomatoes, halved
½ cup fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped
salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
olive oil, for drizzling
balsamic vinegar, for drizzling

Combine salami, mozzarella, tomatoes and basil in a large bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Drizzle with vinegar and olive oil and toss well. Serve at room temperature. (Serves 4)
