Ingredients
  • 6 pkg. Sargento® Ultra-thin® Provolone Cheese
  • 20 slices Salami, thinly sliced
  • 20 slices Sandwich pepperoni
  • 1 bunch Green grapes, washed, separated
  • 12 ea. Grape tomatoes, cut into flower shapes
  • 5 ea. Green onions, cut into strips ¾ way down, soaked in ice water
  • 1 med. Seedless cucumber, cut lengthwise into ½” strips
  • 5-6 ea. Green kale leaves, washed, torn into pieces
  • 3 cups cheese spread or cream cheese to use as base, optional
Directions
  1. 1. To make provolone roses, on a clean, flat surface, lay 4 slices of cheese overlapping each other by
    about 1”. Fold the row of slices in half, making one edge a straight line where all 4 slices are folded.
  2. 2. Starting at one end, slowly rollup the cheese, creating a tight flower like shape. Fold down every other
    edge to make the flower look opened. Secure the bottom with a toothpick. Place bottom side down
    on a large tray lined with foil and refrigerate while doing the remaining flowers. Repeat this process
    with remaining cheese slices.
  3. 3. For salami and pepperoni roses, repeat process above. Refrigerate all flowers until ready to assemble.
  4. 4. To assemble, make a shallow mound of cheese on a large wooden board of tray where you want the
    top of the bouquet to be placed. The cheese base allows you to secure each flower and create a
    rounded look to the bouquet rather than being flat to the surface. Press the cheese and meat roses
    into the cheese spread and secure with toothpicks if necessary on the edges to keep them from falling.
    Leave room in between the roses to allow room for the remaining items.
  5. 5. Add the grapes and kale pieces in between the roses to fill in the gaps. Add the onion and tomato
    flowers, using picks to secure if needed.
  6. 6. Stick the cucumber strips into the bottom of the bouquet to look like stems of flowers. Wrap a ribbon
    or strips of cheddar cheese around stems if desired. Serve.
