If you just got a mini charcuterie board and are wondering how to actually use and decorate a mini charcuterie board... I've got you covered!
Small charcuterie boards are great because you can use them to snack on for a group of 4 people or make a fun lunch board for 2 people.
Small charcuterie boards are basically just building your own adult lunchable!
You have the completely flexibility to make a keto charcuterie board or gluten-free charcuterie board if you like!
How many cheeses do I need for a small charcuterie board:
2 soft cheeses like brie and goat cheese and 1 hard cheese such as a cheddar.
Remember, this is your small charcuterie board so if you want to stick to just using 1 cheese that is up to you!
What do you put on a small charcuterie board:
Cheese: mixing a soft and hard cheese on your board gives great complexity
Raw vegetables: dipping vegetables such as carrots and celery slices are great
Pickled vegetables: olives or pickles add a tangy element to the board
Fruit: depending on the season you can add apple slices, pear slices, or grapes
Nuts: pick your favorite! pistachios, almonds, walnuts... any are great
Deli meat: if you want to make a meat rose, large pepperonis and salami are great! Otherwise you can do any deli meat such as turkey or ham and roll it up with tooth picks.

Dips: pick a complimentary dip to your vegetables, I love a something like a spinach artichoke dip. You could also just use a spicy mustard to pair with your meats, or pick a jam to pair with the cheese.
Crackers: Pick any favorite cracker! If you are gluten-free, my favorite crackers for a small charcuterie board are the Simple Mills brand.
Small Charcuterie Boards Ideas:
You can mix and match any of the above ideas to put on your charcuterie board... or you can go with a theme!
You can base your small charcuterie board around any holiday, any make it color themed as well. Such as all green foods for St. Patrick's Day or all red foods for Valentine's day.
