salami rose tutorial


Lyne Proulx
When you are preparing a charcuterie board, it’s always eye catching to make salami roses or salami flowers as appetizers and display them in the center or to the side of the board. This salami rose tutorial is so simple and easy to do and, best of all, you don’t need any glass to make them or even toothpicks to secure the rose.

  • Cutting board or plate


  • 12 slices Genoa Salami slices salami of your choice
  • 4 leaves Fresh sage


  • Choose 12 slices of salami.
  • Fold each salami in half to make a half circle shape, then lay them in an overlapping line. The salami should overlap about a third over the next slice. The straight part of each salami should be in line with the straight part of the next one.
  • Roll them up starting at one end into a tight roll if you want your salami to look like a bud or semi-tight for a looser salami rosette.
  • After the roll, flip the salami rose around to sit straight. Add 4 slices of salami folded in half on each side of the meat rose with the straight part facing the rose. Take 1 half folded salami slice and wrap one side of the rose, then repeat with the other 3. For a bigger rose, you can add another 4 more slices. The straight part should be at the bottom of the salami rosette.
  • Finally, arrange the salami petals to a looser fit. You can slightly pull on each piece of salami to make it look more like a rose. Add fresh sage around the salami rose to make it look like leaves and help secure the rose.


If you really want to secure the meat rose, you can push a toothpick straight at the bottom of the rose flower made from cured meat to hold it together. If you have the salami rose set tightly beside other meats, cheese, or fruits, it will hold together nicely.
