Dry Salami Coated with Herbs

Every now and then I pick up one of these at the grocery store to make our Special Breakfast. Trouble is, the stores around here don't carry it consistently and as we all know some of brands out there are not up to (my) Chowish standards.

I'm interested in ones that are 1) really tasty, 2) about 10 oz. and 3) consistently available locally (western 'burbs or Mpls). Of course, feel free to post other nominations as they may be of use/interest to others on the board.

TIA

    You can get a kosher salami from fishman's kosher market in St Louis PArk -

      Okay. But I wanted dry salami coated with herbs, not kosher salami.

      Hey, Uncle Ira, your posts disappeared--some of mine, too!

        There are a few different brands sold at Kowalski's and Surdyk's.

          Thanks, I'll have to make a point of trying to remember that when I'm in the area. The Mpls locations are most likely to be nearby sometime when I'm out and about. Do you recommend any of the brands?

            None of the brands really stick in my mind. The ones I've tried have been pretty good.

      I really like the Primo Naturale brand. You can get it sliced and packaged at Whole Foods, which is on Excelsior Blvd. near Lake Calhoun. You can get the rolls in that brand at Fresh and Natural, but that is in Shoreview and in Hudson, WI., a ways away from the western suburbs.

          I'd heard they were overpriced so haven't been in. Maybe I'll check it out sometime. Thanks for the info.

        My favorite brand is Berreta. Bill's imported foods usually has it at good prices.

          Kowalski's sells a good one. It is made on the West Coast. Columbus brand, perhaps?
