Whether you’re throwing a summer party or hosting a few friends for dinner–a salad board or a Shrimp Wedge Salad Charcuterie Board is an easy way to host!

One thing that always brings people together is good food. Our family loves shrimp, of any kind. So when I served this Shrimp Wedge Salad Charcuterie Board, the crowd went wild. [Kidding, but we did enjoy it!] And, you can make your own Best Thousand Island Dressing!

Shrimp Wedge Salad Charcuterie Board

Think wedge salad + a small charcuterie (meat, cheese, and crackers). Check out The Big Board page for more ideas. Or, of you want to know where I bought my boards or how to season them, you can check out this post, How to Season a Charcuterie Board.

Wedge Salad Charcuterie Board

Grab a board, platter, or tray and start slicing and preparing the food for this yummy salad board!

  • Arrange the wedges on the tray and place the foods in between.
  • Add your favorite dressing in the center.
  • A great salad board for a luncheon or small party!

This tray I use all the time. Check out these recipes: Poached Prawn Crudite PlatterFresh Fruit Yogurt Platter, and 7 Tips to a Delicious Crudités Platter.

Ingredients for a Shrimp Wedge Salad Charcuterie Board

  • Small cooked shrimp
  • Thousand Island Dressing – you can make your own, here.
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Soft cooked eggs (perfect soft boiled egg recipe)
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Cooked bacon
  • Feta cheese
  • Red onion
  • Parsley for garnish
  • Fresh black cracked pepper
  • Favorite crackers (have you tried Effie’s Homemade Oat Cakes?)
  • Sliced cheese
  • Sliced Salami

Try something new

One of the things I’ve been doing every day is walking. Not always the same paths, but looking for new ones. I recently visited my sister in Washington for a “sisters’ weekend” and every morning we walked. It was all new to me, and so fun to see her neck of the woods.

I think we get in ruts doing the same thing, walking the same walks, inviting the same people to dinner.

Try something new, friends!

Boards are casual

We even forget to try new recipes, or even new ways to host. I’ve very much been into serving boards for dinner (are you surprised?), and it’s been so fun.

Like a new season of hosting for me.

Boards are easy and casual, too. On a larger scale, try my Epic Bacon Wedge Salad Board. I have so many ideas on Instagram [ @ReluctantEntertainer ] and on my blog, but I read this quote the other day.

We can’t take any credit for our talents. It’s how we use them that counts. —Madeleine L’Engle

Yes, so true.

Make an invite

Make a deliberate invite today. Maybe make it for a luncheon, and serve this Shrimp Wedge Salad Charcuterie Board (serves 6). Or, you may want to serve on a tray/platter a Classic Blue Cheese Wedge Salad. Or, this Fully Loaded Wedge Salad Recipe.

I love sharing my ideas with my people here on RE!

Hosting for me is joyous and beautiful, a great way to get to know people, to sit around the table (cell phones put away), and connect!

This tray above is sold out, but you can grab my board links below!

PS. Grab the recipe to make your own Best Thousand Island Dressing, or … it’s okay to use store bought! :)

Our beautiful world offers us so much, so whether you’re out on a walk with a friend (or your sister), or inviting a few new ladies over for lunch … savor it all.

We never know how much we will impact one another!
