Easter Charcuterie Board

Spring has finally sprung and I couldn’t be happier for warmer weather and Easter coming up. I wanted to create a beautiful Easter Charcuterie Board that could be used at a family gathering or party this season. Walmart is always my go-to place when building a charcuterie board. They have quality fresh ingredients and spring decor that is sure to refresh your space. I have had a Walmart+ membership for the past year and a half and it has saved me so much time. I just open my app and order exactly what I need and have it delivered right to my door for free without stepping foot in the store. It’s so easy and convenient. Be sure to HOP OVER to Walmart for all your Easter and spring needs!

This post was sponsored by Walmart, however, all opinions remain my own.

How To Build This Easter Charcuterie Board?

I love making charcuterie boards because they are so versatile and can be built to meet your specific style. Also, I love building my boards based on the season. So with the Easter Charcuterie Board, I wanted to buy ingredients that would represent the spring season. If you are not a fan of some of the items on this specific board, feel free to sub your favorites.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use A Variety Of Meats: Salami, chorizo, pepperioni, proscuitto, or summer sausage slices.
  • Wait To Place The Meats: Store the meats in the fridge to right before serving. If you put it out too early it can get warm and rubery. Keeping it cool until right before eating makes it tastes so much better.
  • Cheese It Up: Add at least 2 to 3 types of cheese. Texture is everything when it comes to a charcuterie board so pick be sure to pick something creamy, soft and hard. For a bit of tart flavor add in pickles and different varieties of olives.
  • Savory & Sweet: I love pairing savory and sweet when builiding a tray or board. Adding lots of seasonal fruits, honey and jams along side the cheese makes for a wonderful pairing.
  • The Crunch Factor: A good crunch makes everything complete. Be sure to add your favorite crackers, nuts and bread slices along side the cheese and jams. It is truly magical when adding all 3 of these together.
  • Garnish: For garnish I love adding whatever is in season. For fall I like to use fresh herbs and fall fruit and for spring and summer I will add all in season fruits and flowers.
  • Don’t Forget Wine or Sparkling Cider: Wine and sparking cider is the bow on the gift. It really ties this whole board together. The salty and savory flavors of the cheese will enhance the aroma of the wine.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
