Pickles in a Blanket Recipe

Pickles in a Blanket Recipe

There's just something irresistible about the mini pickles. Kids can never eat enough of them and they also like to help roll the salami blankets.


  • 12 thin slices Genoa salami
  • 1/3 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 12 jarred mini gherkin pickles (also called cornichons), drained, plus more if needed


  1. Spread each salami slice with a thin layer of cream cheese to within 1/4 inch of the edges.
  2. Place a gherkin pickle or two in the center of a salami slice. Roll up each salami slice, jelly-roll style.
  3. Cut each roll into thirds, pierce each third with a toothpick, and arrange on a serving platter. Serves 12 (makes 36 rolls).
