This is my final offering from the *Great Lamb* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. I'm not even sure why it was there as it is unrelated to lamb in any way & I almost missed it in the very back of the cookbook. This sounds good to me & would be great w/breadsticks or whatever else our imagination brings to mind. *Enjoy*

- 2 green onions (chopped)

- 4 ounces butter (softened)
- Blend or process all ingredients till well-combined. Cover tightly & refrigerate till firm.

I made this because it sounded a little different from most recipes I make. Once I made it I still wasn't sure what to do with it. I decided to spread it on Italian bread and broil it to go with the antipasto salad I was having for dinner. WOW! It was so good I didn't eat anything else--I'm saving the salad for another night. I think this would be good with a number of different things. This is what comes to mind: broiled on baguette slices as an appetizer, stirred into scrambled eggs, melted over Italian green beans or grilled chicken (or lamb), used as a bread spread when making meatball hoagies, added to hot pasta with veggies, etc. I also think it would be great with mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese added. Next time I make it I will use the food processor to chop the salami finer to make it easier to spread. Thanks for a wonderful recipe twissis!
Loved this unique, delicious butter! Instead of using all salami, I used half salami and half pepperoni. Also, I added 1 TBSP. chopped fresh basil along with the fresh oregano. I put this on French bread slices and topped them with Parmesan cheese. I stuck them under the broiler...yummy! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! **Made for Culinary Quest - Suitcase Gourmets**
Yum! I made this with turkey pepperoni in place of the salami, and I added about a tablespoon of chopped fresh basil as well. I went cross-cultural and served this with KateL's Columbian Gone in a Flash Potato and Cheese Bread for ABM. This went over quite well with my coworkers. I think this would be awesome on some hot cooked noodles as a side dish, or maybe mixed into mac and cheese, perhaps? Definitely a keeper, thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest I
