Product Talk: Soppressata


SoppressataLast night on our first night of vacation, we sat on the porch of the big yellow house, mesmerized by the ocean waves, the pinks and oranges of the sun setting behind us, and the soaring pelicans flying and dipping into the blue water.

Dinner was cooking, but while we were waiting, we sliced some savory soppressata and served it with a tangy, sharp parmesan.

Soppressata is dried, cured Italian hard salami, and it’s found with the specialty cheeses at Brookshire’s stores. While the varieties of soppressata vary among the different regions of Italy where it’s from, the basic sausage is made of pork, pressed and dried flat. It can also be shaped.

Soppressata is traditionally served on an antipasto platter with cheeses, olives and peppers. Currently, on-trend chefs throughout the United States are substituting it for pepperoni on artisanal pizzas and in red sauce with pasta dishes.
