Combine all ingredients for the dressing and whisk together until smooth and lump free. Set aside.
Keep in mind that these ingredients and quantities are just suggestions. Feel free to get creative and cater this salad to incorporate your favorite parts of a charcuterie board. You can make this salad using leftovers from a charcuterie board or buy the ingredients solely with the intention of making this salad.
Start by preparing the ingredients. Wash the produce, slice the cucumbers and apples thinly. If the nuts are whole, crush them in a resealable bag using a rolling pin. You can either chop the salami and prosciutto or make flowers like I did in the photos (I explain how to do this in the blog post). Slice the cheese in to small squares (you can also shred or shave the cheese if you prefer).
Dress the greens with the dressing in a large salad bowl. Top the greens with all the other ingredients, arrange them neatly in the salad bowl on top of the lettuce as you would when making a charcuterie board. Serve immediately.
