The trick to any beautiful charcuterie board is to use several colors and textures. You can easily achieve this by using a variety of meat, cheeses, vegetables, condiments, crackers and breads. To make a gluten free charcuterie board you will want to be sure you have breads, crackers, and sauces that are gluten free.
To create a basic spread you need:
- A tray or platter – this can be anything that you have at home, I prefer wooden boards because I love how beautiful they look with the food.
- small condiment bowls
- Three – four different kinds of cheese– I love used a good aged cheddar, gouda, a goat or sheep cheese
- At least 2 Kinds of meat – salami like sopressata, or genoa, prosciutto, pepperoni – whatever you like.
- Fruit – I love using sliced apples, pears, blood oranges, grapes and berries
- Vegetables – red, yellow and green peppers
- Crackers – I love multi-textured seedy crackers because they look great on the board! I also love against the grain bread.
- mustards and sauces – grainy mustard, honey
- other condiments – olive tapenade, hummus
To assemble the board:
I always place my bowls down first and fill the bowls with whatever sauces or condiments I am using. Next I lay down the cheese and then the meats and fill in the rest of the board with fruit and veggies and gluten free crackers or bread.
So now that you have some inspiration go create one of these boards for yourself! Get some great gluten free supplies, get the whole family involved, and have fun!
