What is Charcuterie?

Charcuterie is the French word for cured meats such as salami and prosciutto. The word Charcuterie is widely associated with the assortment of meats placed together with other snacks such as nuts, cheese and fruit. Charcuterie boards can be made differently according to season. For instance, you can include more berries for a Summer inspired charcuterie Board. However, charcuterie boards typically always have some types of meat and cheese.

What to Put on Your Platter

Here is how to make a beautiful keto friendly charcuterie board:

  • Step 1: Choose Your Charcuterie Board Platter and Serving Dishes. You can use a wooden board, marble slab, tray or platter – whichever you think is more aesthetically pleasing or which you already have in your kitchen. You can also add some small bowls or ramekins for the smaller ingredients such as olives and pickles.
  • Step 2: Select Your Dips & Spread. Some popular options for low carb dips and spreads which you can add to your charcuterie board are ranch dressing, creamy peanut butter or almond butter. Melted brie cheese also makes for a really nice and creamy dip!
  • Step 3: Pick your Cheese for your Board. There are various cheeses which you can use. The great thing about cheese is that there are a lot of kinds which are keto friendly! We prefer using cheddar cheese. However, smoked gouda, pepper jack cheese, brie and swiss are all delicious options that kids will love!
  • Step 4: Choose Your Meats. All of the antipasto options such as, salami, pepperoni, prosciutto, beef sticks, pancetta and chorizo are keto friendly and can be used. You can even fold slices of deli ham or turkey.
  • Step 5: Add in some Fruit and Vegetables. These make for the refreshing part of the charcuterie board. A lot of fruit and vegetables, especially fruit, are typically quite high in sugars, which make them not keto friendly. Good keto approved choices would be berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and also avocado slices for fruit and for vegetables, celery, roasted red peppers, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower and broccoli florets are great choices as they pair well with the dips we mentioned above.
  • Step 6: Include Accompaniments to Fill In the Spaces. You can include any of your favorite low carb snacks on the board. Nuts such as brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts, pili nuts and pecans make for great keto friendly charcuterie board fillers. Some other low carb options are mini pickles, pickled onions, olives, pork rinds and keto crackers.

Tips and Tricks

  • Find flavors which pair well together. It’s good to have an assortment of tastes, color and textures on your serving tray.
  • Mix hard and soft cheese. This allows for wider variety of choice for guests as well as creates different texture, making the board more flavorful and better looking. If you want to go wild, add more textures such as crumbly, semi-soft and also semi-hard cheeses.
  • Take out cheeses from the refrigerator around 30 minutes before serving as they are best served at room temperature.
  • Place small serving knives and toothpicks for each different cheese to avoid mixing flavors. If you’re serving this to kids, do not add in any knives on the charcuterie board.
