CAPICOLA, A.K.A. CAPICOLLOand sometimes called coppa, is an Italian dry-cured salami made of rolled spiced pork shoulder and neck meat; both mild and hot varieties are deli-counter staples. Most often sliced thin for antipasto and sandwiches, for Utica Greens, you should request fat ½-inch-thick slices so you can cut hefty cubes. If you can’t find capicola, prosciutto is the common substitute.
