Looking for a fun, summer treat that you can serve at your next party or just make for a fun snack with your family? How about a bright, colorful Summer Fruit and Vegetable Charcuterie Board. 

What you need are a nice assortment of vegetables, fruits, dips, and cheeses like:

  • Watermelon
  • Pineapple
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Nectarines
  • Bell peppers
  • Snow peas
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Almonds or any preferred nuts
  • Basil pesto
  • Cream cheese
  • Gouda cheese
  • Pepper jack cheese
  • Salami
  • Sesame crackers
  • Water crackers
  • Toasted or grilled bread

Small containers will be needed for holding your dips and sauces. Next, take your large cutting board or platter to showcase your delightful assortment. Here’s how to put it all together:

  1. Choose a board or serving dishes for the charcuterie board.
  2. Place loose ingredients (small candies, loose berries, etc.) into bowls or individual dishes. Place those bowls on the board or buffet first.
  3. Arrange other items around the bowls.
  4. Add assorted tongs, green herbs, or holiday decorations if desired.

    You left out apple slices- the unsightly browning of sliced apples is easily prevented- just soak in lemon or lime juice for 10 minutes then add to your board.
