I am a huge fan of party snacks. When given the choice of a dessert table or an appetizer spread, I will always choose savory over sweet. Speaking of sweet… today I am so thrilled to be participating in a SURPRISE virtual baby shower for my beautiful friend Lauren of Keep it Sweet Desserts.

Lauren is expecting her first baby and I’m so excited that she’s having A BOY! I know I’m a little biased but I think boys are the best.

Lauren and I had the chance to meet face to face this past summer when I was visiting NYC for a couple days. We had so much fun walking, talking and eating out way through Chelsea Market.

Since I knew Lauren’s friends would be baking tons of fabulous desserts for our virtual baby shower, I decided to make a savory appetizer to balance out the sugar. Pickles in a Blanket are such a fun and EASY party appetizer that is perfect as we head into the holidays and the busy entertaining time of year.

Of course, pregnant women love pickles in all forms but who doesn’t? Salty, crunchy and low calorie, these bites are delicious with a cocktail but frankly they make a somewhat healthy, high protein, low carb and gluten free snack any day of the year. Win Win.

Happy Baby Shower Lauren!! I can’t wait for your little one to make his debut into the world!

PREP: 15 minutes
TOTAL: 15 minutes
Servings24 pieces

Ingredients
 

  • 12 slices Genoa salami (thinly sliced)
  • 12 baby dill pickles (quartered)
  • 4 ounces Boursin cheese (I used garlic and fine herbs)

Instructions
 

  • To assemble, stack the salami slices and cut in half to create 24 half moons. Lay each half moon slice of salami out on a flat work surface or cutting board.
  • Using a butter knife, spread a small amount (1/2 teaspoon) of the cheese on each salami half starting in the center, middle.
  • Place a piece of pickle in the center of the salami on top of the cheese and tightly roll into a cone shape. Pierce with a toothpick to keep in place and arrange on a platter to serve.

Notes

There’s no right or wrong way to roll the salami – it will taste delicious no matter how it looks but I found the cone shapes to work well for presentation.

    Not so easy to wrap. Messy to make. Pickle quarter kept slipping. Baby doll pickle to big maybe petite or gherkin size. Not as tasty as indicated.
    Possible: Fresh mozzarella, a slice of tomato and balsamic glaze a better choice.
