Red, white, and blue Charcuterie Board

Everyone loves caprese salad, so with a small star cookie cutter, we made a delicious Caprese salad with blueberries in the center of the board.

Cut out small stars of mozzarella cheese, for a festive holiday salad! The flavors of fresh blueberries, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil are incredible!

Here’s a spin that we love for Caprese salads:

Instead of normal balsamic vinegar, that can make a salad a little messy, use white balsamic instead!

In addition to the beautiful, plump blueberries, drizzle the salad with oil and balsamic, add some sea salt and a crack of pepper, and don’t forget the fresh basil sprig!

Can you put blueberries on a charcuterie board?

Now is the prime time for fresh Oregon blueberries, which pair perfectly on a summer cheese or charcuterie board. For a little healthful goodness, they are the perfect addition for a quick nosh or handful, with plenty of vitamin C. Honey and olives are classic components of the charcuterie board, too.

Which cheese goes with blueberries?

We like to serve mild cheeses, like mozzarella and goat cheese or Brie cheese, that pair so well with sweet and tangy notes of blueberries.

Blueberries are a great way to add excitement to backyard picnics and grilling!

What are the health benefits to eating blueberries?

  • Blueberries pump up your immune system.
  • As powerful disease fighters, blueberries carry four essential nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K & manganese.
  • They contain anthocyanins (this is what gives blueberries their blue color), which are cell-protecting anti-oxidants associated with reducing the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
  • And finally, blueberries help maintain brain function, reduce damage to the brain cells and improve memory.
  • Now is the prime time for fresh Oregon blueberries!

What will you be putting on your patriotic cheese board this summer?
