How to Make Salami Roses for a Charcuterie Board

You can make a beautiful salami rose in no time, with help from this TikTok tutorial.

I love making charcuterie boards! It takes no time at all to build a simple cheese board with cheese, crackers, fruit and spreads. Here’s the best meats for a charcuterie board. Now, I’m seeing people doing super crafty things, like making Disney-inspired charcuterie boards, hot dog charcuterie boards and yes, barkcuterie boards for dogs.

Of course, sometimes you don’t want to put too much effort into a board, but you still want it to look pretty. For those times, here’s an easy trick that’ll make your board look gorgeous in under 2 minutes: salami roses!
