Treat your family and friends to a fun and relaxing Easter Charcuterie Board, filled with all of your favorite cheeses & meats, seasonal fruits and other fresh nibbles. Perfect for a lazy afternoon, a quiet evening or small gathering!
With all the Covid-19 craziness going on, we've been trying to enjoy our time together at home, and I've been stretching out our Easter celebration much longer than usual - but it's all good and I heartily recommend! Why cram everything into one day when you can enjoy for a week? We're looking for sunshine and smiles wherever we can find them!
Charcuterie boards really are such an easy way to entertain, whether it's a quiet evening for two, a small party on the deck with drinks, or a large celebration. It's so easy to scale your board up or down for whatever works for you.
Charcuterie boards are my favorite way to entertain!
The secret of a great charcuterie board is to find fresh flavors and textures that work for you and your family and friends. Mix and match your favorite cheeses, meats, fruits, nuts and condiments for something wonderful and unique every time! For a great Easter Charcuterie Board, these are my recommendations – pick and choose your favorites!
CHEESE: a selection of 2 or 3 is the way to go. One cheese should be soft and creamy; another firm and aged, another flavorful, and another that is seasonal and different. I used:
MEAT: a selection of 2 or 3 Italian sliced deli-meats is the magic number. Something spicy, something peppery, and something traditional. I used our favorites:
SPREADABLES: a selection of 1 or 2 gives you a nice balance. Something with an edge – and another that is a simple surprise. To accompany my fresh berries and savory crackers:
NUTS & CHOCOLATES: you can’t go wrong here at all with a selection of 2 or 3. Something simple and roasted, another spicy, and something sweet – the perfect trifecta of favorites. I used a few simple Easter sweet treats:
SWEET TREATS: In addition to chocolate and nuts, you can’t go wrong here at all with a selection of 2 or 3. Something simple, seasonal and fun for Easter!
FRUITS & VEGETABLES: a selection of seasonal spring fruits gives you a nice balance and a burst of color. I used:
GARNISHES & CONDIMENTS: usually a simple selection of 2 or 3 rounds everything out – something sweet and something savory. I kept this board simple and garnished with:
CRACKERS & BREAD: a selection of 2 or 3 is the perfect amount – if you don’t have room on your platter, you can place them in a basket next to your board. I used our favorites:
FAVORITE BEERS & WINES: Pick a few pints or bottles of your favorites for sipping. It’s all about the relaxing and nibbling!
