Tips For The Perfect Easter Charcuterie Board
A great charcuterie board includes a variety of textures, flavors, and colors that make it not only tasty but visually appealing. Here are some tips for creating an incredible grazing board.
Bright and Pastel Colors - Use a mix of vibrant and colorful candies like jelly beans and pastel M&M's. For fruit, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, oranges, kiwi, and grapes present a beautiful pop of color.
Easter Themed Presentation - Use a bunny or egg-shaped platter or fan fresh vegetables around a small ramekin of dip to look like a flower to represent the spring season. In addition, garnish your charcuterie platter with fresh herbs, such as sprigs of fresh thyme or rosemary.
Make It Ahead - Charcuterie boards are perfect for making in advance, and if they include meats or cheeses, cover them with plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Cheese, fruit, sliced cured meats and Easter themed sweets are all great to include on a charcuterie board for Easter brunch. Using egg and bunny-shaped fruit cutters or Easter themed serving boards will add a wonderful festive element as well.
When using perishable items such as sliced meats, cheeses, and fruits it is best to prepare the charcuterie board no more than 24 hours ahead of time. Once prepared, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to enjoy.
