Don’t you love all the gorgeous charcuterie boards on Pinterest? Some of them are so beautiful and creative.
When the perfect opportunity to put a charcuterie board together came, I jumped at the chance. Making the board seemed more like art than it did food.
To start the board I decided to use a large white cutting board that I already owned. The large fancy wooden ones are pretty but I prefer the plastic ones because I like to put everything in the dishwasher rather than hand wash.
Since I had a white cutting board, I decided to go with white bowls so that the bowls and board wouldn’t be the focus. I wanted the food to be in focus rather than the structure.
I didn’t own too many white bowls so I decided to go to thrift stores and see what I could find. I ended up with two pretty vintage milk glass containers that probably held centerpiece flowers or something at one time. One milk glass was a white top hat and the other a square bowl on a pedestal. The other white bowls I had previously purchased.
After I started assembling everything I realized that I had way more food than the board. Thankfully I had a second board.
On the board I placed:
- Rice Crackers
- Bread Sticks
- Wheat Crackers
- Honey Crisp Apple slices soaked in Lemon Juice
- Orange slices
- Green Olives
- Baked Brie drizzled with honey
- Pepper Jack cheese
- White Cheddar cheese
- Dark chocolate-covered almonds with sea salt
- Peppered salami
- Turkey lunchmeat
