Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 4.4 ounce Bread sticks package the long skinny kind
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 1 package Salami 24-32 slices
  • 6 ounces Provolone cheese thin slices, cut in half
  • 1 pint Strawberries halved
  • 8 ounces pineapple chunks drained
  • 1 package prosciutto
  • 4 ounces Colby jack cheese cut into cubes
  • 4 ounces Pepper jack cheese cut into cubes
  • 6 ounces Black & green olives
  • 6 ounces Mixed nuts
  • 6 ounces Andes mints

Other items needed:

  • Ribbon any color or style
  • Tall narrow glass for making salami roses

Instructions

  • Gather the breadsticks and place on the bottom section of the center serving board.
  • Place fresh rosemary sprigs in the center of the breadstick bundle and tie together with ribbon.
  • Create the salami roses: using 6-8 pieces of salami per rose, start by folding the salami around the rim of a tall thin glass in layers. Turn the glass upside down on the serving board and carefully remove the glass. Move the roses towards the top of the breadstick stem bundle. Repeat until you have 3-4 salami roses.
  • Make cheese roses: roll half a cheese slice tightly then roll a second half around it. Place in the center of the salami roses or randomly on the board.
  • Place remaining ingredients around the flower centerpiece, starting with larger items and filling in empty spots with the smallest ingredients:
  • Additional flower shapes can be made with strawberry centers and pineapple chunk petals, olive centers and cheese cube petals, etc.
  • Roll Prosciutto tightly and place randomly on the board.
  • Place nut mix and chocolate mints along the outside edges.
  • Fill in any holes with smaller items.
