Additionally, salami is a fermented and cured product, so it’s already been preserved and doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge to prevent spoilage. Salami, like other cured meats, is best stored it in a cool, dark cupboard, away from direct sunlight and heat. This is because the cold temperature of a refrigerator can cause the salami to lose some of its flavor and become dry and hard.
Keeping it in the fridge can actually cause the salami to go bad faster due to the fluctuations in temperature that can occur when the fridge door is opened and closed. If you want to keep your salami fresh for as long as possible, it’s best to store it at room temperature.
