Green Charcuterie Board Ideas

A charcuterie board is essentially an artfully arranged selection of meats, cheeses, fruits and crackers that can be customized based on your tastes and preferences. You substitute these green ingredients for the ones I used.

  • Green Vegetables: edamame, zucchini, green peppers, celery, okra, avocado
  • Green Fruit: grapes, kiwi, green apple slices
  • Pickled Vegetables: sweet pickles, dill pickles, mini gherkins, okra, green beans
  • Other Green finger Food Ideas: green decorated snacks, cookies, cupcakes, candy, popcorn,

Bread and Cracker ideas:

Rye bread slices, WASA rye crackers, Carr’s table water crackers, Cheez-its Crackers, soda crackers, pretzels.

Board Ideas

Get creative by arranging the food items in a shamrock shape. Use St Paddy’s Day colors like green and white or add a rainbow in the center with some fun gold chocolate coins! Make the board in the shape of a leprechaun using the greens as his hat and orange cheez-its or Cheetos as his beard! The possibilities are endless!
