Cabanossi cut into several pieces.

Cabanossi /ˌkæbəˈnɒsi/, also spelt kabanosy is a type of dry sausage, similar to a mild salami. It is made from pork and beef, lightly seasoned and then smoked. It traditionally comes in the form of a long, thin sausage, about 30 centimetres (12 in) long, and 2 centimetres (0.79 in) in diameter. Variations include chicken & duck cabanossi. Versions made of turkey are a staple in kosher meat markets and delicatessens.

It is commonly cut into bite sized chunks and eaten cold as an appetiser or snack, often with cubes of cheese and crackers. Sliced cabanossi is also a popular pizza topping.
