Spring Charcuterie Board is made up of beautiful colors, fresh veggies, fruits, cured meats and a few bites of sweets! Each board is perfect for midday snacking and gathering with the whole family!
As spring roles around I am always craving fresh produce, color and bright dishes and a fun way to enjoy healthy snacks with our family. We love to entertain outdoors and a charcuterie board is the best way to feed a crowd with a variety of options for everyone!
Fresh Veggies-Colorful veggies such as cucumbers, endives and carrots are great options to share with a crowd and perfect for dipping.
Fresh Fruits- Grapes are always the perfect addition for cheese and meats boards, but you can always add any fruit you love.
Cured Meats- Prosciutto is a thinly sliced Italian cured ham that has a salty flavor and pairs well with all veggies and cheese.
Cheese- Soft, semi soft, semi hard and hard cheese are all the options that you can choose for a charcuterie board. I love cubed cheddar cheese and a spreadable goat cheese for spring.
Crackers- Salty and crunchy crackers are the perfect addition paired with cheese and cured meats.
Dips- Make your own or buy your favorite, but adding a seasonal dip can be the center of your beautiful snack board. This Green Goddess Dip from Trader Joes is a family favorite.
Sweets- Add a few sweet treats to your salty and savory charcuterie board, such as chocolate or a seasonal cookie. For spring or easter, flower shortbread cookies and Cadbury Chocolate Easter Eggs are a colorful and a delicious addition.
When putting together a Spring Charcuterie Board, adding a variety of color, texture, salty and sweet options are important. Know the crowd you are serving and then choose ingredients to their liking.
Pick A Board-Once you know the amount of people you are serving, choose a board that will can be filled to fit your crowd.
Gather Your Ingredients- Pick your ingredients that go along with the season. For springs I gathered fruits, veggies, a small amount of cured meats, our favorite Green Goddess Dip, some hard boiled eggs, chocolates and cookies.
Assemble- Put together your board using all your ingredients. There is not a specific way to design your board, but I always start with my dips placed in a bowl and set in the middle of the board.
Garnish & Decorate- Garnish your board with fresh herbs and decorate to go with a holiday or season that you are celebrating. For spring and Easter I chose to decorate my table with bunny garland, decorative plates to serve on and some super cute wood stacking bunnies.
