Friends, today I’m sharing my Big, Fat, Greek …. Charcuterie Board! I loved that movie so many years ago, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but today instead of watching a movie, I’m showing you how to make an Epic Greek Charcuterie Board.

We are big hummus lovers in our household, so just in time for the weekend, dig into this Epic Greek Charcuterie Board, made with several flavors of hummus, a lot of vegetables, pita bread, and of course cured meats and cheeses.

You can view all my charcuterie ideas, here. :) In fact, in case you missed my last board, a Kid-Friendly Grilled Cheese Charcuterie Board (great for a kid party), or Salami Caprese Charcuterie Board — check them out!

We love different varieties of hummus, but the standard original flavor is always my favorite.

But did you know that you can also enjoy a chocolate hummus? We bought this at Costco and it’s almost too good to be true. It’s really tasty!

Party Epic Greek Charcuterie Board

Think about Greek food … hummus, Tzatziki sauce, pita bread, olives, dried ruits and nuts.

So good!

We recently celebrated my husband’s new book, Free Us From Bullying by Paul Coughlin, and in order to plan ahead and make the invites, I thought about who in our “new” community (remember, we moved to a new town 2 years ago) should we invite?

Dinner or party invites go like this. You invite people into your home to grow friendships. Sometimes we need a goal, and hosting is well worth the time and effort.

You can’t build friendships without following through on your desires. In other words, many times my husband and I talk after meeting people, about how we’d really like to get to know them more.

But if you don’t make an effort to actually pursue friendship, it won’t happen.

Make a wish list in your notebook

So I have a notebook where I keep a hospitality list going. More than just keeping this “wish list” in my head, it’s good to have on paper. It reminds me when I’m thumbing through my notebook, that yes! We need to have so-and-so over for dinner!

Write down who you want to invite over

1. Make a list of people that you want to get to know better.

2. Think of who might benefit from coming, who might benefit from meeting other people.

It used to be that we hosted more of our kid’s friends’ parents, but now our invite list has changed.

As seasons of life change, so will our dinner invite lists!

How to Make an Epic Charcuterie Board

You take your giant board. (If not food-friendly, layer with parchment paper:) You can also season your board with mineral oil and beeswax, if not food-safe. Research this yourself and decide what method is best for you.

28-inch Charcuterie Board

We bought this giant board (28-inches in diameter with a 2-inch lip) at Pier 1 last fall here in Bend, Oregon. It’s solid wood and SUPER heavy (just warning you). Even thought it’s very beautiful, you need a strong core to carry this around!

  1. I love charcuterie boards but I find they are expensive to make. Side note – where does one store a board that size?? Hahaha!

    • They can be expensive. I like to buy the ingredients and try to get 2 boards (for 2 sets of people) with them. I store it up on top of my kitchen shelving. Easy!

  2. Oh man! That sounds so good!!!!
