4th of July Charcuterie Board – build this epic red, white, and blue themed charcuterie board to celebrate the 4th of July.
4th of July Charcuterie Board
This is such a fun and easy charcuterie board to make. You can call this a charcuterie board, or a grazing board. Traditionally, charcuterie boards are made up primarily of meats, and this one has a small amount of meat, cheese, fruit and nuts. I used a lightweight enamel baking dish to make it easy to transport and serve.
How to Shop for a 4th of July Charcuterie Board
- Look for a variety of red colored ingredients. Dark, light and bright. True red ingredients, like strawberries, will help push things like pepperoni, which has orange undertone, to the red family. Red ingredients are fairly easy to find, so look for small containers of strawberries and cherries so you don’t over buy.
- Cheeses and white crackers are perfect for the white section. Look for white cheddar, brie, and manchego. Manchego has a pretty red rind that coordinates nicely.
- The blue section will be tricky. Go for a big container of blueberries, which will be the true blue. Combining the blueberries with dark purple and black ingredients, like olives will help those read blue.
How to Cut the Star Shape in the Brie
- Buy a round wheel of brie.
- Cut it down the side lengthwise so you have two thinner round brie discs.
- Carefully use a cookie cutter to press star shape into brie.
- Fill the star shape with small berries or pomegranate seeds to make them stand out.
