A second-half penalty from striker Jake Reid and a spectacular third from substitute Adam Kelly secured Salisbury's place in the FA Cup second round as they eased to a 3-1 victory over Southern League side Arlesey.
Salisbury opened the scoring on 12 minutes when Daniel Fitchett collected a pass from player-manager Darrell Clarke and drove the ball high into the net from 10 yards.
The hosts nearly doubled their advantage on 35 minutes when Charlie Knight's curling shot bounced back off the post with Arlesey goalkeeper Mark Osborn well beaten.
The visitors unexpectedly drew level shortly before half-time when Dean Sinclair reacted first to a loose ball and struck a fierce bicycle kick into the back of the net.
However, Reid restored the home side's advantage on 54 minutes after Fitchett was felled by Arlesey skipper Derek Brown before Kelly curled home a delightful third two minutes from time.
