Summer Charcuterie Board

When it is too hot to even think about cooking dinner, make a charcuterie board with lots of summer fruit. At first it might look a little daunting but follow these easy steps for a great summertime treat. Plus, this is easy to switch up ingredients to make more kid friendly.

Summer Charcuterie Board

  • Raw Walnuts
  • Peaches
  • Prosciutto-wrapped Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
  • Blackberries
  • Cherries
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Breadsticks, Crostini, Crackers
  • Brie, Parmesan, Gouda, Mozzarella
  • Salami, Prosciutto, Cured Sausages
  • Fig Jam
  • Honey

To build your summer charcuterie board, be sure to start out with a tray or platter that’s large enough to fit all your goodies! I love to use a tray with handles as it makes it easy for carrying outside or to your entertaining space.

My first step for creating any grazing board is to place the cheeses. Space them evenly around the platter.  Then I add any bowls of honey,and jams. Add in your fresh fruits and vegetables throughout.

Next, I add in nuts and tuck in fresh herbs or floral blooms as garnish. Add in cheese knives and serve!
