Spicy Salami and Roasted Tomato Sandwich

Spicy salami & Roasted tomato sandwich ready for eating!

I’m generally happiest when I’m standing around one of my grills, coals stoked, and a sizable piece of protein sizzling away. That said, building (and eating) a good sando always puts a smile on my face as well. So much so, that I created an entire category on my blog dedicated just to sandwiches and this is the sandwich that inspired that category on the blog. I could seriously eat this one three times a week.

I’m convinced any lover of one of the major sandwich shops will rethink ordering another overpriced sandwich after they try this spicy salami and roasted tomato sandwich. Like any good sandwich, this one starts with the bread, and ciabatta is my choice in this case.

Ciabatta gives enough chew to stand up to this sandwich while offering a subtle yet savory flavor that goes well with the sweetness of the tomato and the buttery flavor of the brie. A great loaf of fresh ciabatta can be tricky to find⁠—I recommend checking your local bakeries for a fresh loaf. I generally hit up a local place called, appropriately, Dolce & Ciabatta that I absolutely love. Your town likely has an artisan baker like the one I visit, just do a quick google search for where to buy ciabatta bread.

Anyway, I digress, let’s get back to those complementing flavors. Every ingredient of this sandwich plays off the other⁠—the spiciness of the salami with the sweetness of the roasted tomato.

Roasted tomatoes are placed in a glass jar or freezer bag and covered with olive oil.

The earthiness of the brie opposite the bitterness of the arugula is like a symphony of flavors in your mouth. Another reason to use a hearty and mild bread like ciabatta: the bread should complement the sando, not compete with it.

A little competition is usually a good thing, but that’s not in the case here. You wouldn’t want to use, say, a sourdough bread. I absolutely love sourdough, but that flavor profile just wouldn’t work with the flavors running through this spicy salami and roasted tomato sandwich. Save the sourdough for my open-faced beef sando which is of course amazeballs.
