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.
What is a charcuterie board?
I love a charcuterie board. I mean what’s not to love? Cured meat, creamy cheeses, and delicious veggies and dip? Sign me up! And the good news is, this board is so easy to make. It may seem a little intimidating, but today I’m going to show you step by step how to create your own beautiful Irish board. You may even impress some of your friends.
Let’s get started!
Ingredients for this grazing board:
- Green pepper
- Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Dip
- Pastrami or corned beef + Italian dry salami
- Trader Joe’s Pita Bite Crackers
- English cucumber
- Marin French Brie (we bought at Trader Joe’s – OMG, have you tried this yet?)
- Trader Joe’s Irish Porter Cheddar Cheese
- Celery heart
- White mushrooms
- Sugar snap peas
- White yogurt pretzels
- Milk chocolate coins (wrapped in gold)
- Pistachios (in shells)
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.
