5 minute Salami Caper Crostini

This 5 minute salami caper crostini comes together in a flash and is perfect for last minute holiday parties.

I am roll here when it comes to quick and easy appetizers that are fit for a party. And today is no exception, these 5 minute Salami Caper Crostini are so simple yet so perfect. They are perfect for Christmas parties, New Year’s Parties and “the kids are finally napping so mama gets a minute to herself and wants a snack” parties.

I’m a snacker.

I admit it.

Cured meats like salami, pepperoni and the like have always been my one of my favorite snacks. Especially this time of year. I think it’s because a meat and cheese platter was always a part of our holiday celebrations. As I start to make my own traditions, I’m keeping with the whole meat and cheese thing but jazzing it up a bit with some capers and making these 5 minute Salami Caper Crostini.

To say these 5 Minute Salami Caper Crostini were a huge hit is an understatement. Ryan and I gobbled them up. The boys were huge fans too. Seriously, little Mr. Preston kept coming into the kitchen, pointing at the plate and saying “that!that!”

We’re working on “please”.

This 5 minute salami caper crostini comes together in a flash and is perfect for last minute holiday parties.

For the cheese in this recipe, I used Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Garlic and Herb Cheese. It is one of my favorite spreadable cheeses. Feel free to substitute your favorite spreadable cheese if you’re not a fan of garlic and herb. These little gems would also be wonderful with goat cheese.

For the salami portion, I bought a log of salami and diced it up. It works better than the thinly sliced salami. I think it happens to make for prettier presentation too.

With just 4 ingredients, these Salami Caper Crostini are crazy easy to make and would be perfect for last minute party appetizer or heck even surprise Santa with a plate of these and some wine. He might just appreciate the change of pace from all the sweets ;)

    Such an easy and delicious idea!! I was introduced to capers by my husband and I was a little hesitant at first because I do not like olives and they reminded me of them. But one taste assured me otherwise and I have loved them ever since!
