Simple Charcuterie Board for every occasion
These are the top reasons why we love a good Charcuterie Board:
- it's a show-stopping appetizer that everyone adores
- you can adjust it to your taste 100%
- you can find meats, cheese, spreads, fruits, nuts, crackers, and pickles on this board
- perfect for a large crowd, for picnics and birthday parties
- feel free to serve it as a snack for game night or as a cold appetizer before a special dinner
Tips and tricks to make the best Charcuterie Board at home
This is how we always make Charcuterie Boards at home.
Choose a beautiful base. We love using a round or rectangular wooden board, but feel free to use a marble board, a rimmed baking sheet, or a beautiful serving tray.
Pickles. Pickles and spreads make Charcuterie Boards fun, surprising, and well-balanced. We used DROGA dobrote pickles, but feel free to use your favorites. You can also use olives, jams, and different spreads.
Textures. Adding crackers, crostini, pretzels, fresh fruits, dried fruits, herbs, and nuts adds color and texture and makes it more visually appealing.
Shapes and sizes. Cut the cheese into rectangles, circles, and triangles to create different shapes and sizes. You can easily fold the meat or make ribbons. Choosing different forms of crackers and colorful grapes, and dried fruits makes it fun.
It's best to serve the Charcuterie Board soon after you make it. If not, cover it with clingfilm and place it in the fridge until serving. Add the fresh fruits and herbs right before placing them on the table.
