How to Assemble an Easter Charcuterie Board
Use a large rectangular cutting board to create this Easter charcuterie board. Always start with any bowls or containers. It’s easier to arrange food around the bowls. For this Easter board, I used simple round ramekins. But small bunny or egg-shaped bowls would also be cute. My bowls hold Cadbury mini chocolate eggs and a Green Goddess veggie dip.
After placing the ramekins diagonally from each other, I arranged food around them. Typically, I like to arrange the larger food first. Then fill in with smaller snacks as I go.
Arranging the Veggies
Since this is an Easter charcuterie board, carrots were a necessity. I arranged whole, peeled, carrots in the upper right-hand corner of the board. They are just above the Green Goddess dip. I opted for whole carrots because they really help the Easter theme stand out.
Just below the carrots, to the right of the dip, are sliced radishes. I’ve always loved radishes on a veggie tray. But feel free to replace them with celery, sliced cucumber, or sugar snap peas.
Arranging the Fruit
In the lower left-hand corner, arrange a stem of grapes. Keep the large bunch of grapes connected and wrap them around the bottom of the other ramekin. Then use singular grapes or smaller bunches to fill in any gaps. Remember, the key to a beautiful board is for it to look full.
I used green grapes for their bright, spring-like color. I also added another bunch of green grapes to the top of the board next to the carrots.
After the grapes, I filled in the lower right corner of the board with colorful macarons. These little cookies are beautiful and come in a large variety of colors. They are the perfect colorful touch for a charcuterie board. I arranged the macarons in four rows. Then I added a few cookies to the tops and sides. This breaks up the uniformity of the rows.
With the macarons in place, it was easier to arrange a pile of strawberries between them and the radishes. The macarons help hold the berries in place on the board. The strawberries are in a line from the right side of the board to the center.
After the fruit, I added a bunny cookie cutter full of small bunny-shaped cookies. The Annie’s Neopolitan Bunny Grahams are white, pink, and brown. So they add some fun elements of color to the center of the board. I poured the cookies into the cutter. Then I arranged the ones on top face up. I also ensured that all three colors of cookies were visible.
Arranging the Charcuterie
The cookie cutter acts as a barrier between the charcuterie elements of cheese and salami and the rest of the board. First, I placed a log of goat cheese on a small rectangle of parchment paper. I cut half of the log into slices of goat cheese. This makes serving easier and adds more visual interest.
Then I placed round crackers around the left and bottom of the goat cheese log. The crackers help keep the cheese separated from the rest of the board.
Above the goat cheese and crackers is salami. The salami is folded into quarters. Each quarter faces the opposite direction and interlocks with the next. This forms a salami chain. I made my chains small, with just four or five slices of salami each. I stuck a toothpick through each small chain to hold them in place. Serving the salami this way makes it easier to just grab a few pieces of salami without disturbing the whole display.
Next to the salami are several provolone cheese roses. They are a cute way to display thinly sliced cheese on a charcuterie board.
How to Make a Provolone Cheese Rose
A cheese rose adds height and visual interest to thinly sliced cheeses. First, lay four circular pieces of provolone cheese on top of each other. Cut the cheese in half. Then spread four halves out so that each piece overlaps in the middle. Roll up the halves. The top of the roll looks a bit like a rose. Secure the cheese roses in place with a toothpick if needed. Continue this until you have the desired number of cheese roses.
Finish the board off by tucking a few white chocolate-covered pretzels into the remaining space in the middle of the board. The white pretzels brighten up the middle of the board. And adds visual contrast.
Add the Garnish
The final touch for any charcuterie board is a garnish. They are typically an herb or other bits of edible greenery. The garnish fills in any remaining blank space. For this Easter charcuterie board, I used the leafy tops of the carrots as the garnish. I tucked them in a few blank spaces around the outside of the board.
Then I sprinkled a few additional Cadbury mini eggs across the top. These just add a pop of color throughout the board. And finally, I used my veggie cutters to make a few flower and bunny-shaped pieces of provolone cheese. I placed the bunnies on top of the Green Goddess dip. The flowers were spread out across the board.
