chopped salad in a salami cup

Chopped Salad in Salami Cups on white plate on picnic table

5 from 4 reviews

We took our favorite chopped salad, cut everything a little finer, and smaller, and used the salami as cups! 


  • Genoa salami (round slices, 3 per cup)
  • deli turkey breast, sliced into thin strips and then in half
  • deli provolone cheese, sliced into thin strips and then in half 
  • grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • green onions, chopped
  • chickpeas
  • romaine lettuce, chopped into thin ribbons

Ingredients for Salad Dressing:

  • one shallot, chopped
  • one garlic clove, chopped
  • one teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil (Add slowly and shake in a bottle or whisk in a bowl until you have the right consistency).


  1. Bake the salami layered in a cupcake pan. I used three per cup. Bake for 7 minutes in a 350º oven. Drain on paper towels.
  2. While the salami is in the oven, assemble the salad and the salad dressing.
  3. Toss the salad and using tongs, fill each salami cup and serve immediately. 


I did not add amounts for the salad ingredients, but you’ll need 3 slices of salami for each cup. Everything else can be based on how many you are serving. You can make this for two or 22!
