More Deer Than I Can Eat

I've been given a large (2lbs?) frozen (from friend's deep-freeze to my freezer) venison salami. How do I make the best use of it? I've already considered sandwiches of many varieties, but what else?

Salami of any variety is tasty chopped up and put into pasta sauce, or baked on top of a pizza (with fresh oregano and maybe some deer-appropriate mushrooms?), or sliced, put on bread with some cheese and some chopped onion and broiled in the oven. Treat it both like a main ingredient and a flavoring agent, because it's so full of tastiness, so use it to flavor boring vegetables or minced up in a sauce or even on a salad in place of crumbled bacon.

Dice it into potato salad or macaroni salad.

Make salami rolls! Either make or buy bread dough and cut the salami into strips. Wrap several of the strips in a ball of dough. Raise and bake. If you have any questions look for recipes for West Virginia Pepperoni Rolls. Regular salami would be too greasy but venison should be fine.

You lucky duck!

Dice up a portion and make into a hash with diced potatoes and finely chopped onions. Add some cayenne and maybe a diced pepper for color.

You could also make a fried rice, too.

Make a casserole with salami, ricotta, mozzarella, etc. Only recommended if you are really confident in your heart health.

It would probably be good in a soup.

If it's too much to finish, a food bank might appreciate some.
