You can use bamboo or a nice long piece of wood sealed in beeswax. Whichever board you choose just make sure it’s long enough to display a shape of a candy cane.

The trick to this is all about the layering of the salami and pepperoni. You can layer more than one or two pieces like shown here. I did this and layered a few slices per section.

The second tip is to tuck the basil under the slices or in between the slices of meat. This allows for the basil to stay in place. I additionally serve crostini on the side in a wreath shape.

I get a log of fresh mozzarella pre sliced. Fresh mozzarella is hard to slice perfectly so I like the pre sliced however, use whatever fresh mozzarella you can find. I find mine at Sprouts or Central Market.
