5 minute Salami Caper Crostini

I am kind of on a 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.

One of my favorite all time snacks has always been cured meats like salami, pepperoni and the like. 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 kind of an understatement. They weren’t just gobbled up by Ryan and I, 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”.

5 Minute Salami and Caper Crostini

For the cheese in this recipe, I used Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Garlic and Herb Cheese. It is one of my favorite spreadable cheeses. That being said, you can 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 ;)

  • That looks soooo good! I would eat that for dinner with a glass of wine!

  • 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!
