Christmas Wreath Charcuterie Board

We actually love this board any time of year. It’s simple enough, and you can change the herbs out per season (ie, basil for summer, thyme for fall, rosemary for winter).

Tips and substitutions:

  • This is a simple board, so you don’t need any bowls. Cut everything the same bite size, so it looks uniform.
  • A board with a lip works the best (so the food stays on the board).
  • Repeat the patterns throughout the wreath, for example, laying down cheese, then meat, then cheese.
  • Aim for 2-3 types of cheeses (try soft, hard, and flavored cheeses) and 2-3 types of meats, several types of fresh or dried fruit, and a few crunchy items if you prefer.
  • You can add a touch of chocolate, and crackers or cookies.
  • TIP: If you are using a square board and are struggling to keep the round shape, you can trace a circle on a piece of parchment paper and place that on top of your board to use as an outline.
  • Make it vegetarian. Think about adding another vegetable, if you prefer to not add salami, like cucumbers or peppers, some soft bread like mini naans, or even marinated vegetables like artichokes.
  • Make a dip. Instead of the balsamic drizzle, think about adding a dip in the middle of the charcuterie wreath with the balsamic glaze, for spooning and serving individually. You can also make a dip like our Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip.
