How to prepare Italian roll-ups with salami

How to cut the flour tortilla (or piadina)

Using a smooth-bladed knife, cut the piadina to square it. To do this, cut off two opposite ends of the piadina and apparate one side (photos 1-2).

Stuffing tortillas (piadinas)

In a bowl, mix the spreadable cheese with the parsley, lemon juice and cheese.
Spread the piadina with the resulting cream cheese, forming an even layer (photo 3).
Cut the piadina into 4 strips (photo 4). If you want smaller rolls, you can get them by cutting narrower strips.

Cut a slice of salami in half and arrange it on the piadina strip. The rounded end of the salami slice should come out of the piadina strip (photo 5-6).
Arrange a black olive on one end (photo 7).
Roll up the strip starting with the olive and tightening well (photo 8-9).

Stand the roll upright (photo 10) and secure with a toothpick, inserting half an olive on each side.
