Salami is one of my favorite things to include on a cheese board but it’s not very cute to have a pile of salami sitting there. A rose, however, that guests can pluck petal by petal? Incredible! All you’ll need is a pack of salami (one regular pack of salami will make one good sized rose) and a small wine glass. Here we go!

  1. Fold one piece of salami over the edge of the wine glass. Grab another slice and do the same thing, partially overlapping the first piece of salami. Keep going until the entire pack is used and the center of the wine glass is filled with salami.
  2. Place your hand on top of the salami and gently flip the whole thing upside down on to the board you want to serve it on. Remove the wine glass and ooh and ahh as your salami rose is revealed.
