What Goes On A Summer Charcuterie Board?

When choosing ingredients for your board, think about contrasting flavors and textures as well as colors. Visualize the board before you set to work.

Summer entertaining wouldn’t be complete without good wine and a bountiful charcuterie board! Take the summers bounty and all the glorious color and pile it high alongside a variety of meats and cheeses. Charcuterie boards are almost effortless and loved by all!

Some fruit and veggies options could include:

  • Green grapes
  • Red grapes
  • Rainier cherries
  • Plums
  • Raspberries

Dinner parties or BBQs are lovely and a Charcuterie board is always a fun way to feed your friends. They can even be quite filling. Having different foods and flavors is a great way to cater to the tastes and diets of everyone you invite!

What Is A Charcuterie Board?

Charcuterie is French by origin and is essentially the art of preparing and assembling different types of cheese and cured meats. But, for most of us, the word charcuterie describes an assortment of meats, slices of bread or crackers, nuts, fruit, cheese, and sauce. In other words, a Charcuterie Board is a kicked-up cheese board!

Summertime is a great time to showcase garden-fresh veggies and seasonal fruits. The array of colors of the fresh produce alone will be a feast for the eyes.

Some fruit and veggies options could include:

  • Green grapes
  • Red grapes
  • Rainier cherries
  • Plums
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Strawberries
  • Bell peppers
  • Zucchini
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Baby carrots

Once you have your produce, it is a matter of pairing those flavors with complimentary cheeses (again, think texture and flavors). Goat cheese or blue cheese is wonderful with fresh strawberries, and stone fruit is a lovely match for a soft Brie cheese. But also offer a contrast, perhaps adding a hard cheese like Parmesan or something smooth like Fontina.

Some lovely cheeses to consider are:

  • Brie round
  • Parmesan cheese
  • White cheddar
  • Fontina
  • Gruyere

Adding meats will make your charcuterie board more traditional. You can add cured meats, sausages, or pates. Some great options include:

  • Prosciutto
  • Soppressata salami
  • Hard salami

You can keep this vegetarian and add nuts, crackers, spreads, and olives like these:

  • Spicy mustard
  • Fig Jam
  • Marinated Olives
  • Chili spiced pistachios
  • Coconut caramel cashews
  • Chocolate covered espresso beans
  • Wafer crackers
  • Cracker thins
  • Fresh mint
  • Dried mango slices
