Servings 4


  • large display board or cutting board


  • 1 head green leaf or romaine lettuce, or kale
  • 8 ounces (each) thinly sliced cured prosciutto and salami
  • 4 ounces (each) chevre, cheddar, gouda, gruyere, or blue cheeses
  • 8 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 10-12 wheat crackers

Optional Garnishes

  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 8 green or white grapes OR olives
  • 1 starfruit, thinly sliced
  • sweet multi-colored pepper, thinly sliced


  • Form the lettuce into a tree shape on a large display or cutting board.
  • Arrange the meats on the bed of lettuce in three rows to mimic garland.
  • Position the cheeses- cut into different shapes or crumbled- in between the meat "branches". Crumbled chevre can be arranged to look like a popcorn garland.
  • Towards the outer edges of the meats and cheese, arrange the sprigs of fresh rosemary to create "branches".
  • Use the wheat crackers to create a tree stump towards the bottom.
  • Arrange your optional garnishes to mimic ornaments by placing them randomly around the meats and cheeses.
    Add a garland of sliced starfruit and prop a slice of this fruit on a few crackers to create the tree-topper.
  • Serve the Festive Charcuterie Grazing Board within 4 hours.
