What is a grazing board?

A “grazing board” is simply a fancy name for a party platter. Marth Stewart made the “grazing board” a thing years ago, which is another name for a party platter or party tray! Basically it’s finger foods, or munchies you can eat with your hands.

It’s important to know that there is no wrong way to make your charcuterie board. There is no limit to what kind of ingredients you choose. You do need a good board though!

And friends, a cutting board (or a flat board) just doesn’t cut it. I’ve been making boards for years now and know that if you don’t have a lip around the outside, it becomes a big mess. Have you seen this, too?

That is what I love about my boards: The food is contained in one place. My boards are easy to transport, too.

  • 1 green pepper, top sliced off 2 inches (for a bowl)
  • 1 Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Dip
  • 8 oz pastrami or corned beef, rolled
  • 4 oz Italian dry salami
  • 1 6 oz box Trader Joe’s Pita Bite Crackers
