  • sliced meats, I used mine for making salami roses
  • hard cheeses and soft cheese like Boursin
  • sprigs of rosemary and other green herbs
  • fig jam or another seasonal jam
  • seasonal produce and fresh fruit like pomegranate seeds, oranges, persimmon and cranberries
  • green olives and cucumbers
  • nuts, crackers and anything else you like
  • decorated sugar cookies optional


  • Step 1: Get a board and place cups and little spreading knives where you would like them 
  • Step 2: Add some dips, sauce or berries in the little cups as well as things like pickles which are wet and can make a mess
  • Step 3: Add cheeses around the board, I recommend at least three varieties
  • Step 4: Make salami roses and add those in as well
  • Step 5: Add the cured meats, crackers, fruits and veggies (I love adding fresh pomegranate to this board!)
  • Step 6: Finish by adding in the green herbs to make a “wreath” look


Pro Tip: The cups  or bowls on the board are especially great for berries, olives and anything with “juices” so they don’t get your other board ingredients soggy
It is best to put all items that need refrigeration such as cheeses, meats and dips and put them into containers. They can then be refrigerated until you want to enjoy them again. 
Crackers, fruits, cookies and non-refrigerated items can be placed in containers and bags and stored at room temperature.
