A variety of paninis can be made with the Columbus salami collections. Try the herb salami with gruyere and Kalamata olives. Hot fennel salami goes great with goat cheese and sliced roasted red peppers. The Italian dry salami is delicious with aged white cheddar. Serve with mixed baby greens dressed with vinaigrette and a glass of Prosecco or rosé. Heavenly!

Preheat a panini press according to manufacturer's instructions.

Brush one side of each bread slice lightly with olive oil. Lay 2 of the bread slices oiled side down on a work surface. Spread mustard on the slices, layer with salami slices, the roasted red pepper strips and the goat cheese. Top with the remaining 2 bread slices, oiled side up.

Place the sandwiches on the preheated panini press and cook according to manufacturer's instructions until the sandwich is hot, the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melting.

Cut each sandwich in half and serve immediately.
