Holiday Charcuterie with Blue Diamond
This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
With all the planning and preparing that come with the holidays I am always enamored with the amount of people we have to feed. To make sure I am prepared, I always have everything to make a delicious charcuterie board on hand.
The key to a really awesome charcuterie is variety and quality. To me nuts are the heart, I love using Blue Diamond Wasabi & Soy Sauce flavored almonds, and Smokehouse flavored almonds. This gives people a spicy and a not spicy savory option on the board.
Meats and cheeses are also great options to have in variety. I usually put out a mix of soft and hard cheeses with meats of different spice levels. Putting it all on the board is quick and easy to do with guests in the kitchen, pour a glass of wine for everyone first and make it fun.
If you’d like to elevate your charcuterie board, add honey, jams and berries. These are great for mixing with the cheese on crackers. My go to crackers are the Blue Diamond Cheddar Nut-Thins because they are super yummy and gluten free so all your guests can enjoy.
Add veggies, chocolate and holiday garnishes to bring your charcuterie board the next level. After pulling a charcuterie board together a few times it gets easier to do spur of the moment. Grab anything you think would work well on one when it’s on sale while food shopping that way you always have a stocked pantry. Kroger always has great sales on Blue Diamond Almonds and Nut-Thins.
