Charcuterie Board

This past Saturday was my birthday and to celebrate, my family took me to a local winery for a picnic. The weather was uncooperative, but the venue had a lovely tasting room with tables to enjoy food and wine.


As part of my present, my husband picked up some terrific items to make a charcuterie board.  Whether you are having a date night at home or just hanging out with friends, a cheese and meat tray is an ideal snack.


These trays can be customized to include your favorite cheeses, meats and crackers. I even like to eat this for lunch on occasion. I present the food on a nice cutting board. The one pictured was a gift my husband purchased from World Market.


Charcuterie DIY


  • An assortment of crackers
  • A couple varieties of salami (We tried rosé and sparkling wine infused)
  • Cheese (some hard and soft styles) This board contained Ash ripened goat cheese, Brie and Sharp provolone.
  • Honey (a perfect topping)
  • Fresh fruit (grapes, apples or berries) You may also used dried fruit- likes cranberries or apricots.
  • Chocolate (I purchased a dark sea salt variety at the winery)
  • Caviar (if you are feeling brave! My husband picked up salmon roe, which added a bit of saltiness)


Once you’ve selected your ingredients, slice up some of the cheese and salami and arrange on the board. Add in the crackers; fruit and enjoy!


You should also, have cheese utensils nearby, so people can continue to serve themselves. This is such a great party platter and it really looks impressive too.

Thanks for reading! xo
