Daniele Veneto Salame

March 18, 2016

Walmart of all places, that’s where I found this pretty good salami.

The texture is sort of chewy/rubbery and a little softer than one might expect from a salami like this. The taste has a fair amount of garlic flavor (a good thing in my book) and is otherwise generally good.   There’s a little bit of another flavor in there which adds almost a little sweetness (probably the dextrose listed on the label).  There is no skin/casing on the salami once freed from its heavy plastic wrapping.

Overall this is a pretty good Italian salami that will satisfy a sudden urge for this type of salami, but not as good as the Volpi salami found at Trader Joe’s and other outlets.

Pot Luck Italian Pasta Salad – recipe

01/22/2011

A couple of times a month, I leave work, walk across the parking lot, go to the deli department of the local supermarket, buy a small container of some type of pasta salad costing around $6/lb., plus or minus, walk out of the store, back across the parking lot, take the elevator back to the office, where I eat the pasta salad at my desk.  As well as having a very boring life, I like pasta salad.

Trader Joe’s Update – December, 2010

12/18/2010

A recent trip to TJ’s proved disappointing this week.  Gone from the shelves were my favorite Chianti Artisan Salami as well as its cousin Pinot Grigio Artisan Salami.  I hope this a temporary aberration.  (more…)

Trader Joe’s Chianti Artisan Salami – Food Review

07/24/2010

Having been low on wine for at least a month, I made a long overdue trip to the Trader today.  While there, of course, it’s impossible to just come out of the store with what you thought you were going in for. So here’s a tasty extra which goes pretty good with the wine.
