I love Genoa. I just eat it as is in an antipasto with bread, cheese, raw veggies and assorted pickles or marinate veggies. I love the texture and flavor too much to mix it with other ingredients.

I would also pick the Genoa Salami and use it on an antipasto plate with a good sharp Provolone Cheese, some black olives, and some roasted red peppers. For the expensive cold cuts you could choose Prosciutto de Parma and add that to your antipasto plate as well. I'm drooling just thinking about this.

Hard Salami usually has a smokey flavor, while Genoa has a slightly spicy flavor. I like both, but Genoa is my favorite.

So how do you say it, GEN-noah or Gen-o-ah (like the city in Italy). I pronounce it like the city in Italy, but many of my customers pronounce it with a NOAH at the end.

Salame Genovese is the real Mccoy. Most of the stuff available here is Genoa STYLE salami. From where I was at in Italy (Viareggio), Genoa was closer than Milan but salame Milanese was more popular

Well I ended up with the hard salami and only because (don't laugh) the slices were kind of flower shaped... and I though my girls would be more inclined to try it that way! I had forgotten how much I love salami until I ate a slice last night. I agree with Rocklobster that enjoying it as-is would be the way to go! I see an antipasto platter in my future...

Get the Genoa!! Hard salami taste nasty to me. Pepperoni is religated to cheese plates or pizza.

I feel just the opposite! I love Hard Salami, I don't like Genoa.
If I was planning to make Cold Cut Subs, I would get the Hard Salami.
If I was planning on making Pizza, Pepperoni Rolls or Cavitini I would get pepperoni. Both go well on a snack tray with cheese.

Can you get 1 pound of Hard Salami and 1 pound of Pepperoni? That is what I would do.

Good thinking, getting the kids to try it is important! Any of the 3 would have been good.

When I was a kid the adults didn't have to do anything to get us to try any kind of salami. I just didn't like big bits of black pepper. So I took them out.

And this discussion is having a bad influence on me. Guess what was in my shopping cart at Costco today? And that I'm eating right now on RyVita.
