Ingredient Additions & Substitutions For Spring Charcuterie Board

Meat flowers

Besides prosciutto, you can also do salami roses and ham flowers for your spring charcuterie board! Read on for the tutorial.

A charcuterie board will be incomplete without different types of cheese! And for the spring theme, I think it’s only fitting to make cheese flowers. 

You can cut gouda into flower shapes or transform provolone into roses.

Tips About Making a Spring Themed Charcuterie Board

How To Store This Spring Charcuterie Board

  • Fridge: Group similar components together and store leftovers from your spring charcuterie board in the fridge for a few days. Just note that some items, like the crackers, don’t need to be refrigerated. 
  • Freezer: I don’t recommend freezing your leftovers from the spring charcuterie board, as they’ll likely develop an unappealing taste and texture after thawing. 
  • Make-ahead: To make this spring themed charcuterie board in advance, assemble everything and wrap the board with plastic wrap for serving the next day.

What Are 5 Things to Avoid on a Charcuterie Board?

It’s not like there’s a set of rules you must follow religiously when assembling a seasonal charcuterie board like this spring charcuterie board. 

However, here’s a quick list of things to avoid so you can build the ultimate spring charcuterie board:

  • Not planning the food quantities
  • Not having a theme in mind
  • Not preparing the food items accordingly (e.g., unwrapping, slicing, bringing some food items to room temperature before serving)
  • Setting limitations on what to add to the platter
  • Not using the correct size, shape, or material for the charcuterie board itself

I should also point out that there are charcuterie board guides that suggest avoiding certain foods when building a charcuterie board:

  • Vegetables like peppers and tomatoes, especially if you plan on having the board with wine since these veggies don’t easily pair with wines
  • Strong-flavored, stinky cheeses that can clash with other food items
  • Super sour or spicy foods as they can overwhelm the palate
  • Food items that can be tricky to chew (e.g., those that need utensils)
  • Food items that can’t be left out sitting for too long

I say deciding what foods to put on your board should still depend on the specific event you’ll host. 🤷‍♀️

How to Make Meat Flowers for Charcuterie Board

Salami and pepperoni roses

It’s actually super easy to make roses from salami and pepperoni slices for a touch of elegance on your charcuterie board!

Just fold the slices over a glass’s rim, overlapping each other. Do as many rows as needed to get the size of rose you want. 

Then, carefully flip the rose over the spring snack board.

Ham and prosciutto roses

Not a fan of salami and pepperoni?

Maybe you’ll prefer ham and prosciutto for your spring charcuterie board instead!

To turn prosciutto or ham into a rose, cut a piece about half an inch wide, then roll it from the fat side.

That’s pretty much it, and it’s ready to go on your beautiful spring snack board.

How to Make Cheese Flowers for Charcuterie Board

Meats are not the only items in the charcuterie board that you can turn into flowers. 

You can use provolone slices because they’re circular, thin, and flexible enough to be manipulated. 

Just stack a few slices together, cut them in half, and lay them out so they overlap and align. 

Then, roll from the bottom up.

Finally, secure the outermost edges with a toothpick.
