Happy Day 8 of Blogmas! Blogmas is a series that I am bringing to the blog this year (and hopefully in subsequent years) that will provide y’all with a new recipe every day of December through Christmas. How fun is that? Today I’m excited to be sharing an easy tutorial on how to make a charcuterie wreath! So festive, so fun to make, and so fun to eat. This will become a mainstay for your holiday in years to come!
I learned how to make this via a class led by Gathered Living in partnership with my friends at Kroger.
How To Make A Charcuterie Wreath
6-8 ounces salami
4-6 ounces proscuitto
1 container cherry tomatoes
2 more cheeses of your choice (I chose Horseradish Cheddar + a delicious Bleu, both from the cheese counter of my local Kroger)
1 jar of green olives
1 jar sweet red peppers
1 jar pepperoncinis
Lots of fresh basil + rosemary, for garnish
- In a circular shape, arrange all items in a nonuniform fashion. Go ingredient by ingredient, though reserve the fresh herbs. Try to fill in all holes with ingredients. This board should be rustic, look handmade, yet adhere to the shape of a wreath. That’s the key!
- Once ingredients are in a circle, frame the circular shape with fresh rosemary.
- Garnish the top of the entire board with fresh basil.
- Serve and enjoy (but first… take a picture!).
Y’all come back now, ya hear?
See you tomorrow!
