Directions:
Take two pieces of salami and lay them next to each other; overlap them by 1/4. "Glue" the two pieces together with a little cream cheese. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over most of the two pieces (keep top 1/8 free of cheese).
Place green onion on one side and lower edge of salami pieces. Roll up and form a flower that looks much like a lilly or orchid, flaring out the top edges. Place on platter or stand in a vase.
