Hooray For Salami Day!

Hope you've got big plans for a evening out on the town, eating some delicious salami. If you prefer a relaxing meal at home, your local grocer should have a variety of delightful salamis to choose from. Or, if you're super lazy, order that pizza with pepperoni, one of the more popular types of salami. No matter what, have a great Salami Day, and wish all your friends a Happy Salami Day as well, as one good sausage party deserves another.

A Brief History of Salami Day

Salami Day was first started in 2006 in Henrico, Virginia, by the Salami Appreciation Society (SAS for short). Salami Day, as well as the SAS, for that matter, were the result of spontaneous inspiration on the part of the founders, Christine and Virginia. The group has grown by leaps and bounds since then, to include upwards of over 10 people! Word is spreading, though, and soon the whole world will be able to participate in the joy of eating this delicious meat product on the exact same day that other salami lovers are doing it as well. To start your own chapter of the Salami Appreciation Society, all you have to do is organize a salami-related party or outing and September 7th. It's that easy!

Salami is a too-often overlooked meat in the world of deli meats, and the Salami Appreciation Society felt that it, too, deserved it's day in the sun. It holds a special place in all of our hearts. Salami has a rich history and is definitely a part of a healthy diet, providing important nutrients such as protein and potassium. It can be eaten on sandwiches, crackers, in pita wraps, tortilla wraps, or even by itself. No one can resist the ultimate duo of salami and cheese, for that matter! Be sure to tell your friends about Salami Day this September 7th, so everyone can share in the joy that salami brings to the world!
