These Salami or pepperoni roses really dress up a charcuterie board to impress your family and friends. Surprisingly, these meat roses are easy to make. Add your favorite fruit, crackers, and cheese and your snack board is complete.

The charcuterie boards are so popular to serve as an appetizer or snack for a party or just to have for a poolside treat. These steps will show you how to make a rose out of salami.

Can I use Pepperoni Instead?

Yes, pepperoni work just the same. Add the pepper to a smaller glass like a shot glass and add the pepperoni slices just like you do for salami.

Turn the glass upside down and place it on cheese board. I like adding both salami roses and pepperoni roses so it gives the board dimension.

Tips for a Charcuterie Board:

  • Use a board with an edge. It will make it SO much easier to put together and get the ingredients to stay in place.
  • These are best served immediately or fairly soon after putting together.
  • Try to include a variety of fruits, deli meats, cheeses and crackers. Not only does it look pretty to have a nice selection but it will ensure your guest have options to choose from. Everyone will enjoy several variety of cheeses and sliced meats.
  • Flip the glass – After you have placed the meat around the glass flip the glass on the board.
