Spicy Springer's salami is complemented with fresh mozzarella, basil leaves and a flavourful pesto. Serve with a fresh green salad for an easy but upscale lunch.

2 tbsp pesto 25 mL


Brush one side of each piece of bread with olive oil. Top 6 of the slices on the un-oiled side with salami slices, mozzarella and basil leaves.
