With the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs and football season in full swing, it seems timely to share this simple tailgate snack idea. The credit for this recipe belongs to my friend, Linda, who served it at a recent get-together, saying it was a favorite of her husband, Chris. After eating a half dozen, I understood where Chris was coming from and asked her how to make them.
Here’s what she told me: take a slice of salami (in St. Louis, that means Volpi salami), spread on a layer of Neufchatel cream cheese, and top with a slice of pepperoncini–that’s it. My husband is hooked–he’s made platters to take to tailgate parties and plans to make this his contribution at the next poker party. I like that all the ingredients keep in the frig and that it can be assembled at a moment’s notice.
Thanks to Linda and Chris for sharing!
