How to Assemble a Charcuterie Board

This one may or may not actually need instructions but I think it’s still worth sharing. Charcuterie boards are great at parties, for holidays and any other special occasion you can think of.



Cheese (at least 1 hard and one soft in most cases)

Cured Meats


Olives and Pickles



Sauces (Mustard, Jam, Hummus, etc.)

Nuts (optional)


  1. Cut all ingredients into bite-size pieces for easy
  2. Arrange items so that two types of any one thing (i.e. crackers or cheese or fruit) aren’t touching each other
  3. Keep items that can roll (i.e. tomatoes, olives) in the inside so you don’t lose them
  4. Fill the board somehow or other, don’t worry, it should go a little over the edge
  5. Enjoy!

So… maybe those aren’t really directions but more so tips. In the end, I would say feel free to wing it and remember to only include things you think you or someone else will actually eat.

As always, I hope everyone has a good week and let me know what I should try to make next!
