Why you will love the Heart shaped Charcuterie Board

The board can be assembled in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Store in an air-tight container like a glass storage container. 

My favorite thing about the charcuterie board idea is easy to customize, a fun way to show how creative you are by adding readily available ingredients.

It only takes a few minutes to create a perfect board!

Ingredients for a board for two

3 ounces salami – I used the Italian-style salami

4 straight brezelles

4 slices prosciutto

2 ounces chicken ham

5 oz. mozzarella

3 ounces thinly sliced hard cheeses – You can substitute with your favorite cheeses like the cheddar cheese, blue cheese or goat cheese

2 tangerines 

3-4 tablespoons mixed nuts (pecans, peanuts, pumpkin seeds)

4 large grapes – I prefer the seedless grapes, you can also add any other fresh fruit (s) of your choice. 

Crackers, heart-shaped puffs, or any other type of cracker available to you.

parsley

2 tbsp. honey 

Equipment needed 

Charcuterie Board or large plates

small bowls

Cookie cutter

Cookie molds

Sharp knife

How to make an easy Charcuterie board

Step: Preparation

1. Remove the wrapping from the salami. Fold each piece into four. Pinch the salami together as in the photo to make sausage rose petals. 

2. For cupid’s arrows, wrap the breezeless in prosciutto. 

3. Slice the ham randomly with a knife.

4. Cut a heart out of a whole piece of mozzarella with a large cookie cutter. Slice the heart into slices, keeping the shape.

5. With the cookie molds, form colors and hearts from thin cheese slices.

6. Peel the tangerines. 

Step 2: Arranging your epic charcuterie board

On the snack board, start by arranging the tangerine slices along the rim of the board. Place the mozzarella hearts in the center. Arrange the nuts around the edge. Arrange the salami and the cheese hearts.

Continue laying out the ingredients to fill up the remaining spaces. Try not to leave any empty spaces. Last of all, place the cupid’s arrows. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the hearts. Decorate the board with berries and herbs.
