Charcuterie

There are many nights where we've eaten heavy for a couple of days and just need something light and simple for supper.  One of our standbys is a classic charcuterie platter.  It's so easy to grab a few meats, cheeses, veggies and fruit and voila--a whole delicious meal!

We usually include some combination of the following: 

    • summer sausage, hard salami or prosciutto
    • smoked gouda, brie, sharp cheddar or muenster
    • cherry tomatoes
    • carrots or celery
    • hummus
    • grapes
    • pears
    • crackers or a baguette

    You could also make this to set out at a party because it's so pretty.  And you almost always have leftovers to snack on later or throw into a salad.  Yummy, healthy, and easy!
