Looking for the perfect Thanksgiving appetizer? You found it! This Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board screams holiday.
It’s just impossible for me to make a charcuterie board without a salami rose these days. It’s just so pretty and literally takes 60 seconds. If you haven’t seen my salami rose tutorial, read this.
I bought gorgeous Le Roule cheese with cranberry from France that was surprisingly delicious on apple slices. I also used my famous homemade cranberry sauce spooned over cream cheese for this board. That alone would be a fantastic appetizer! It’s absolutely delicious on a crunchy cracker.
Speaking of crackers, I also used adorable homemade leaf crackers I baked the day before. Obviously you can substitute store bought crackers if you prefer.
Now I know I always complain about charcuterie boards on the internet that have chocolate next to cheese but I did decide to use my gorgeous sugared cranberries on this board. Why? Well they’re sweet AND tart and they’re very pop-able if you were walking past the board. If that’s too out there for you, you could easily use dried cranberries instead.
I hope this inspires you to take your very own Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board to your holiday gathering. Please tag @therosetable if you do. I would love to see your creations!
