Meats For Your Charcuterie Party Platter
Since it’s the main meal at your party, you’ll need at least 5 ounces of meat per person and plenty of toasted bread, cheese, dips, and olives to go with it.
Buy a nice mix of meats like dry-cured salami, decadent prosciutto, and smoky sausage.
Also, speck, coppa, and soppressata are great choices, too, if you want to get a bit fancy on the palate.
