  3. Slice the salami and peperoni logs into rounds.
  4. Chop the fruits and vegetables into bite-sized pieces. For a beautiful spread, try to choose a different shape for each fruit or vegetable.
  5. Assemble the board. Start by spreading the cheeses, meats, and olive bowl across the board. Then add the crackers near a cheese. Next, place the chopped fruits and vegetables around the board.
