    I love antipasti and this looks great. This is the kind of appetizer that people who wouldn’t normally like cured meats would love this. What a fun idea! Thanks for having such a family oriented recipe blog!

    1. Great easy recipe. The filled salami cups keep their shape well even after an hour after making them. Perfect if you need to transport them somewhere else. Only thing is that I found them a bit too salty. Any ideas to reduce the saltiness?

    2. Unfortunalty, salami is just so salty as is. You could try to find a lower sodium salami at your local deli 🙂

  2. These look great! Can you cook the salami ahead of time? Would they hold their shape?

    These are simply amazing. I made them for a bowl game party last night, and they were gone almost immediately. I made a double recipe, and only had about 14 people here. I should have tripled it, at least. I made the salami cups in the morning, and they held their shape no problem until I was ready to use them in the evening. These will definitely become part of my go-to repertoire. Plenty elegant enough even for a dinner party. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Did you reheat the salami cup or have them cold? I will be rushed for time and need to make these the day before.

    2. If you make them the day before, I would just quickly reheat them for a couple minutes 🙂

  4. Good morning! Just letting you know that I featured this recipe in a round-up of 50+ Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Superbowl Party Appetizer Recipes. Hope a lot of people will click over from my site and check it out!

  5. Is there any need to drizzle with EVOO and red wine vinegar? Or because the artichokes are marinated/drained there isn’t a need? Can chopped olives be added as well? They sound delicious and elegant too!!

    Thank you

      We drizzle olive oil over them or mix the oil in with the filling and the whole family loves them! The kids like theirs without the artichoke hearts.

      I made them and they were a big hit, but I think adding a little balsamic or red wine vinegar to the mixture would definitely help both boosting the flavor and tying everything together
