Salami is a type of cured sausage that is popular in Italian cuisine. It is made from ground meat, typically pork, mixed with various spices and seasonings. The mixture is then stuffed into a casing and fermented and dried over a period of time. Salami is commonly enjoyed sliced thin and used as a topping for pizzas, sandwiches, and charcuterie boards. It can also be incorporated into pasta dishes, salads, or enjoyed on its own as a snack.
