How to Make a Salami Rose

Forget flowers, a true path to someone’s heart is learning how to make a salami rose bouquet for your charcuterie boards.  

A salami rose is the prettiest and easiest way to make a plain meat and cheese board look romantic.  

What’s also amazing about the salami rose is that you can make them in about 30 seconds, and all you need is a champagne flute!

How to make a charcuterie board

Charcuterie boards can be as simple or as artistic as you want to make it.  

The perfect charcuterie board includes a mixture of meats, cheeses, something sweet, and something crunchy.  

Our favorite charcuterie boards are both organized and visually appealing.  

What we mean by this is that everything on the board is placed with a purpose, there are no empty spaces, and can likely pair with something near to it on the board

Charcuterie meats to include on a grazing board

Salami isn’t the only charcuterie meat that you can turn into a rose, and it’s definitely not the only meat you should have on your grazing board. 

Our favorite charcuterie meats to pair with salami range in texture, size, spice, and type of meat.

  1. Prosciutto or jamon
  2. Mortadella
  3. Bresaola
  4. Spicy coppa

How to fold salami for charcuterie (and other meat)

This salami rose takes a simple charcuterie board to the next level. 

Other than the rose method you can simply lay meats and cheeses out in a fan or in a line.  

Another fold we like is a quarter fold where our charcuterie meat is folded in half two times. 

The quarter fold is great for stuffing meat into tiny crevices on the board so we don’t have any empty spacing.
