Are you having people over this weekend? Put together a simple but delicious charcuterie board! A charcuterie board is usually a mix of meats, cheeses, olives, nuts and breads.

Make it your own. For the cheese chose 1 or 2, use Brie, or exta old cheddar, Parmesan or blue cheese. For the meats, try 2 or 3, like a salami, chorizo, prosciutto, kielbasa, or pate. You can pull it together is a matter of minutes and guests can freely serve themselves.

For my dinner I chose an extra old cheddar. I cut it in squares and then triangles to add to the presentation. Followed by German salami, chorizo and kielbasa. I added some fresh tomatoes from my garden too. Then comes the olives. I love olives. My favorite are called castelvetrano olives. They are delish! I wrote about them a while back so check it out!

Once you have your ingredients start assembling! If you have a wood cutting board use it as it looks lovely. Start with your meats and cheeses, add some olives and tomatoes and then fill in the gaps with slices baguettes and crackers. Enjoy!

I am a girl who loves food. I grew up with a Mom who was an excellent cook. She wrote a cookbook when I was a child, and as they say, the rest is history. Started a catering business in 2005 and haven’t looked back. I am a mom to 2 beautiful girls and I want them to love food as much as I do. In the meantime, I love life and love my job @ http://www.monicaskitchen.com
