An easy to assemble charcuterie platter that incorporates seasonal fruits!
easy appetizer recipe, holiday recipe, party recipe
Amounts are up to you! For this platter I used:
5sprigs of rosemary
an assortment of prosciutto, salami, pepperoni, ham, or sausage
sliced or diced cheeses (preferably from grass fed cows) I LOVE aged hard cheeses like gouda, cheddar and Manchego, but I also love soft cheeses like chevre and brie. The beauty of the board is you can mix it up to fit everyone's taste! And if you're unsure, ask the people behind the cheese counter at your local store!
roasted salted cashews and mixed nuts
4ozround of goat cheese
spicy cranberry jam
persimmons, sliced (or use tangerine sections kumquats or pears)
If you picture your platter like a clock face, place the rosemary springs at 12:00. 2:00, 3:30, 7:00 and 10:00.
Add grapes to center of platter
Layer rolled prosciutto and salami in three bunches randomly around platter
Add small bowls filled with pomegranate seeds and kalamata olives and a round of goat cheese topped with cranberry jam (or other seasonal jam)
Fill in the gaps with persimmons and plenty of crackers, cheeses and nuts!
