how to make individual charcuterie boards

 These individual charcuterie boards are perfect for those small gatherings during Covid. 

No double dipping, no worrying that someone touched something that they didn't end up eating.

And today I am going to show you how to make these individual charcuterie boards with a fun twist.

Want to know what that fun twist is?

A salami rose!

Seriously, how cute is that?
It really is simple to make, so read on, your guests will be so impressed!

Not only are they cute and easy to make, but look at the little trays they are on. Can you guess what they are?

I went to the craft store in search of the perfect size board for an individual serving.
In the unfinished wood area there were these little picture frame/sign looking pieces about 5" square with a hook to hang. 


I found very similar ones here.

Alright, are you ready to get started. You are going to die when you see how simple these are.

Like I said, my boards came with a little gold triangle hanger on the top, which folds over to the back. If you look closely you can see them in the photo above.

I used the hanger as a place to thread through a cloth napkin! 

If yours don't come with a hanger, you can either add one, or just place the napkin on the side.

Now, don't waste any time searching the grocery store aisles for cute little things to put on these.

Don't spend hours cutting up little cubes of cheese.

Here's what you do. 

Head to the grocery store {or Starbucks} and buy the little plastic boxes that come with everything already cut up and prepared. 

While you are there grab a pack of genoa salami to make your roses, which by the way, you can make the day before.

There are many different videos out there showing you how to make your salami roses.

Many of them use a wine glass to create the shape. I found using a shot glass was easier, took less meat, and created a tighter rose.
Experiment with different size glasses.

Only use round meats. The thinner the meat the better, as it holds it's shape.


Layer the slices of salami overlapping each other on the top of your glass, with the first layer having the least amount of slices. 
Layer the second row of meat in between the pieces that were laid out before.
Continue using the same process until you have the desired size rose. You will want to press the pieces and fold them tightly on each layer.

Finally, flip the glass over onto your charcuterie board and release.
If the rose starts to lose it's shape, you can quickly put your other items around it to hold it in place, or leave the glass on it until you are ready to serve.
