Salami Chips with White Bean Dip

Salami chips with a white bean dip are a dangerously tempting thing. Crunchy meaty yummy. It’d be difficult to make them even better, but you can by serving them with a roasted garlic white bean dip. The creamy dip (almost like a hummus) compliments the salami perfectly. This makes for a great easy appetizer or snack for the big game.
Salami Chips with White Bean DipMost grocery stores sell a variety of different styles of salami. Grab a few different flavors and mix them up on the plate. Many salamis have a very thick casing, which not all people enjoy. You can remove it quite easily after slicing the salami thin.
