Prep Time: 20 minutes
Assembly Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • Fresh Rosemary sprigs
  • 8 oz Cheddar Cheese cubes
  • 8 oz Pepper Jack Cheese cubes
  • 8 oz Colby Cheese cubes
  • 8 oz Fresh Mozzarella balls
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup Black Olives cured and pitted
  • 1 cup Green Olives cured and pitted
  • 4 oz Pepperoni sliced
  • 4 oz Salami sliced
  • 11/2 cups grapes purple and green, seedless
  • Slice of Colby Jack Cheese 1 slice for star
  • 1/4 cup Pretzel Sticks

Instructions

  • Use a large rectangular platter or wooden cutting board.
  • Place your pretzels vertically at the bottom of the platter/board to create the trunk of the tree.
  • Then lay a row of fresh rosemary horizontally across the bottom of the board to establish the base of your tree.
  • After that, just begin placing your ingredients in thin, shorter rows to create a triangle.
  • Make sure as you are assembling your tree to plan it out using a mix of colors!
  • Continue by laying the pepperoni slices
  • Then add a mixture of the pepper jack and colby cheeses
  • Next, a row of black olives. Then a row of green grapes.
  • Next, lay another row of rosemary to create branches throughout the tree.
  • Then, add your salami and mozzarella balls. This is important because you want to fold your salmi in half and use the mozzarella balls to prop the slices up.
  • Add another row of rosemary, then place your cheddar cheese and green olives.
  • Continue adding rows of rosemary throughout the assembly to create the look of tree branches.
  • Lastly, add your tomatoes and red grapes
  • Use a star shaped cookie cutter (or a paring knife) to cut out a star from a slice of colby cheese
  • Place the star on top and add little springs of rosemary throughout and you're all set!
  • Serve with club crackers, pretzels or bread chips!

Notes

  • Know that you can place and choose ingredients to your liking! This takes a little bit of finessing and you may find olives and grapes rolling around on your board a bit but once you start, it's pretty easy to fill in and create a cute, decorative board!
