Ingredients

Spreads:

Cheeses:

  • 4 oz blue cheese wedge
  • 4 oz herbed goat cheese log
  • 4 oz Colby cheese squares

Crackers & Breads:

  • 15-20 assorted crackers
  • 1-2 pita breads, sliced

Fruits & Vegetables

Pickled Items:

  • ½ cup gherkins or mini pickles

Nuts & Seeds:

  • ½ cup cashews

Garnishes:

  • edible flowers

Instructions

  • Choose a large cutting board or platter to use for charcuterie. Or use a medium-sized board plus additional plates or bowls.
  • Prepare ingredients for charcuterie board as needed: prep any homemade recipes, slice cheeses and roll sliced meats if desired, cut pita bread and vegetables for snacking.
  • Begin assembling board with any items that need to be served in small bowls—like dips and spreads.
  • Next, arrange cheeses and meats on board in desired pattern. (It’s okay to adjust them as you go!)
  • Layer on crackers or breads, along with fruits and vegetables. (I chose to serve my pita bread on the side for this board.)
  • Finally, add nuts and seeds to board in small piles (or small bowls).
  • Finish board with any desired garnishes like edible flowers, fresh herb sprigs, or a crack of black pepper.
