6oz.salami and other cured meats
1/2English cucumber- sliced
2cupsgrapes- green and red combo
1cuphoney roasted nuts
sugared cranberries- to garnish
fresh rosemary- to garnish
Prep all ingredients. Slice cheese, clean fruit, slice veggies, remove items from packaging.
Prep star. Use a cookie cutter and fill it in with sliced cheese.
Assemble board. Use a large board for this quantity of food. Place the star on top and continue adding items, using the lower quantity ones at the top, forming a triangular tree. I like to plan out the color scheme before I assemble so there are some bright pops of color throughout. The grapes are a nice touch to the bottom of the tree, because they resemble branches hanging down.Add the pretzels to the bottom of the tree, or the trunk.
Garnish tree with sprigs of rosemary and the sugared cranberries. Make it your own!
